Two killed in Fairfax County County police pursuit

Double fatality

Two people were killed and another was critically injured in a crash during a police pursuit that began as a traffic stop, police said.

Around 1:50 a.m., on Monday, a police officer attempted to stop the driver of a 1999 Dodge Neon, for suspicion of driving while intoxicated, according to Fairfax County Police. The Neon was west bound on Hilltop Road when it attempted to flee. The Neon lost control near the intersection with Old Lee Highway and ran off the road, striking a tree, near the Merrifield area, police said.

The driver and one passenger were pronounced dead at the scene and a second passenger was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police have not yet released the identities of those killed in the crash.

While the crash remains under investigation, it does appear that alcohol and speed are factors in the crash. Next of kin have not been located yet but all three occupants are adult males.
