McLean Police District – A 62-year-old woman died Sunday from injuries sustained in a crash that occurred last week. Officers responded to a crash around 3 p.m. on March 9 in the 8800 block of Georgetown Pike that involved three cars. The driver of a 2020 Audi A5 was traveling west on Georgetown Pike. The driver of a 2005 Nissan Sentra and the driver of a 1991 Toyota MR5 were both traveling east on Georgetown Pike. The driver of the Audi lost control of his car, crossed the double yellow line, and hit the Nissan head-on. The Audi then spun into the path of the Toyota, resulting in the Toyota rear-ending the Audi.
The driver of the Audi was treated for injuries at the scene. The driver of the Toyota was taken to the hospital for injuries not considered life-threatening. The driver of the Nissan, Karla Boggess, of Berryville, was taken to the hospital and succumbed to her injuries four days after the crash.
Detectives continue to investigate to determine if speed or alcohol were factors in the crash. The investigation remains active, and details of the investigation will be presented to the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney for review.
