Man charged with DWI in fatal accident

By Erica Johnston

A 61-year-old Manassas man was struck by an automobile and killed late Friday night in the Manassas area, Prince William County police said. Police said they believed alcohol was a factor in the incident for both the driver and the pedestrian.

They said Michael Cozad, of Coverstone Hill Circle, was killed shortly after 11 p.m. near Sudley Road and Coverstone Drive.

Police said Matthew David Souza, 23, of Dairy Road in Herndon was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated.

County police said in a statement that Cozad was not in a designated crosswalk.

I guess Mr. Souza is not an 'illegal', since there would be 100 postings by now.

If the suspect were black, checkered1 would have chimed in with something about "what you can expect from savages".
