Fatal Crash in Lorton
West Springfield Police District- A man died as a result of injuries from a crash that occurred at the intersection of Ox Road and Hooes Road in Lorton around 8:40 p.m. last night. Our Crash Reconstruction Detectives have preliminarily determined that Brian Beyreuther, 45, of Lorton, was driving a 2018 Ford Escape making a left turn from Hooes Road to southbound Ox Road with the green light. The other driver was traveling north on Ox Road, driving a 2019 Dodge Ram, when he disregarded the red signal and struck the Ford Escape. Beyreuther was taken to a nearby hospital where he died. The other driver was taken to a hospital with injuries that are not considered life threatening. Charges are pending as the investigation continues. Speed appears to be a factor in the crash.
