Fairfax woman dies in hospital after Saturday car crash

A 74-year-old Sterling woman who was involved in a car crash Friday in Reston died in a hospital Saturday, police said.

Mattie S. Holder, of the 200 block of East Charlotte Street, was traveling west on Sunset Hills Road shortly after 3:40 p.m. when the 2009 Toyota Scion she was driving went out of control near the intersection of Reston Parkway, police said.

The car crossed the median strip and the road’s eastbound traffic lanes before coming to rest in a drainage ditch.

Police said Holder, who suffered serious injuries in the crash, may also have suffered a medical problem while driving, causing the car to go out of control.

They said she died at Fairfax Hospital.
