Two Juveniles Die in Fairfax Station Fatal Crash

West Springfield Police District – Two juveniles died, and one teen was seriously injured in a single-vehicle crash that occurred last night in Fairfax Station.   

At 9:26 p.m. dispatchers received an emergency crash notification in the 7400 block of Lee Chapel Road. Officers searched the area and found a 2019 Lexus IS350 off of the road. Fire and rescue personnel extricated one victim, who was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries considered life-threatening. Two other occupants of the Lexus were declared deceased at the scene.   

Preliminarily, detectives determined the driver was traveling north on Lee Chapel Road. As the sedan crested a hill, the driver lost control, left the roadway and the vehicle came to rest on its roof. Preliminarily, detectives believe speed was a factor in the crash. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash.   

Per Virginia Code 19.2-11.2, police departments are prohibited from providing information about juvenile victims unless parental consent is provided. The code prohibits Virginia law enforcement agencies from directly or indirectly identifying deceased juvenile victims of a crime.  

This is the 1st non-pedestrian-related fatal crash in the County to date in 2023. Year to date, in 2022 there was one non-pedestrian-related fatal crash.
