McLean Police District – Crash Reconstruction detectives are investigating a fatal crash that occurred around 1:30 p.m. today. We were called to the intersection of Lewinsville Road and Lancia Drive for a car into a pole with live wires around the vehicle.
An investigation determined a 33-year-old man was driving a 2003 Mazda 6 westbound on Lewinsville Road when his car left the roadway and struck a utility pole head-on. Chad Cheatham, of McLean, was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin have been notified.
It appears that speed was a factor and the investigation is ongoing to determine any other circumstances that may have contributed to this crash.
