Fairfax, Va. --- Virginia State Police are investigating an accident that left the passenger of a suspected carjacked vehicle, dead.
D.C. police say a Honda Accord had been taken in a carjacking around 11:20 p.m. Friday from the 400 block of Newcomb Street SE.
Around 12:45 a.m. Saturday, a Virginia state trooper spotted a Honda Accord, suspected to have been the carjacked vehicle, travelling at excessive speed on Route 236 (Main Street/Little River Turnpike). When the trooper attempted to conduct a traffic stop, the driver of the Accord increased his speed attempting to flee as he sped through the City of Fairfax.
The driver disregarded a stop light at the intersection of Fairfax Boulevard and Main Street and slammed into a Toyota Camry. The driver of the Accord took off on foot. A passenger in the Accord died at the scene.
Police quickly captured the driver, who was an unlicensed 15 year old. So far he has been charged with hit & run, eluding police and involuntary manslaughter. Police have not determined who carjacked the Honda.
The name of the driver is not being released because of his age.
The driver of the Camry sustained non-life threatening injuries.
