Fatal Crash in Reston

Officers responded to the 1100 block of Walker Road in the Great Falls area on Saturday, August 6, around 7:32 a.m. for the report of a single-vehicle crash. Officers located a yellow 2004 convertible that had been involved in the crash. The initial investigation determined that an adult male was driving the vehicle northbound on Walker Road, when for an unknown reason, the vehicle left the roadway, hit a dirt berm, overturned several times, and came to rest.

The driver of the vehicle, a 28-year-old male, was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries and pronounced deceased by medical staff. There were no other occupants in the vehicle.

Preliminary information suggests that speed appears to be a factor in this crash. The driver of the vehicle has been identified as Henry H. Sterne, of Alexandria, and next of kin has been notified. Detectives from the Crash Reconstruction Unit responded and the investigation is on-going.
