Fairfax crash investigators probe death of driver
Fairfax County police are investigating a single-vehicle crash that killed a 47-year-old man Thursday night. The victim, Umar Adam, had been driving a 2008 Honda Civic southbound on South Kings Highway, near the intersection of Southgate Drive, when the Honda veered off the road and struck a brick wall, police said.
Adam, of Arlington Drive in Alexandria, died a short time later at a hospital. Speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, police said. There were no signs of braking prior to impact.
Anyone who may have seen the crash is asked to call 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or 703-691-2131.
