Woman, 60, dies in Fairfax crash

A Fairfax County woman died in a Thursday night crash, authorities said Friday.

A 17-year-old boy was driving a Ford Mustang west on Lee Highway around 10:09 p.m. when a Volkswagen Passat headed east turned left onto Waples Mill Road, according to a Fairfax County Police press release, and the vehicles collided.

Raj Grover, 60, of the 12000 block of Ridgemist Lane, was the passenger of the Passat. She was pronounced dead at Inova Fairfax Hospital, police said. The driver of the Passat, a 65-year-old man, and of the Mustang were taken to the hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Both drivers had green lights, police said, and neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors in the crash.

Comments

if they both had gree lights, than the VW driver was responsible for the accident for not yielding to oncoming traffic.

To be fair though, not many people in Virginia understand what "yield" means anyway.

Condolences to the crash victim's kin.
