Sully Police District – Crash Reconstruction detectives are investigating a fatal crash that occurred shortly before 1 a.m. today (December 23). Officers were called to the 7200 block of Ordway Road for a car that had overturned. An investigation determined a 31-year-old man was driving a Toyota Scion southbound on Ordway Road. He had one passenger in the car, a 22-year-old woman.
The car was traveling at a high rate of speed and crossed over the double yellow lines to pass a vehicle. The driver lost control of the car and ran off the road. The Scion rolled and the passenger, Darling Ramirez, of Manassas, was ejected from inside. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Once he was medically cleared, Carlos Lopez Umanzor, of Manassas, was taken to the Adult Detention Center and charged with driving while intoxicated. (Mugshot not available at this time).
Both speed and alcohol appear to be contributing factors to the crash. Additional charges could be placed pending further investigation.
