3rd death after Christmas Eve crash
A three-vehicle crash on Dec. 24 has claimed the life of a third man, the Loudoun County Sheriff's Department said Thursday.
George J. Radston, 58, of Ashburn died Wednesday at Inova Fairfax Hospital from injuries he suffered in a Dec. 24 crash on Route 9 in Loudoun.
Radston was the driver of an eastbound 2009 Pontiac G6 four-door that apparently crossed the centerline of Rt. 9 and struck a westbound 2010 Toyota Prius.
A father and sonin the Prius died as a result of the crash: David Doane, 76, of Tennessee, died in the immediate wake of the crash and his son, Timothy D. Doane, 49, of Harper's Ferry, W.Va. died Jan. 4.
The Pontiac also struck a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta that was behind the Prius. The driver and passenger in that vehicle were treated at the Cornwell Campus of Inova Loudoun Hospital and released.
Radston was not wearing a seatbelt and had been ejected from the Pontiac as it rolled in the crash, which remains under investigation by members of the Sheriff's Office Crash Reconstruction Unit.
