Fatal crash in Springfield area
Fairfax County police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred Saturday morning on the Franconia-Springfield Parkway.
Officials say Romeo Alexander Arana, 35, of Arlington was traveling south on the Parkway when he lost control of his car on the ice and hit a snow embankment near Accotink Creek. Arana was pronounced dead at the scene.
Speed does not appear to be a factor in the crash, authorities say, adding that investigators have not yet determined if alcohol may have played a role. Arana was not wearing his seatbelt.
