Virginia Teen Charged After Woman Dies in Crash
Authorities said they have charged a 17-year-old Virginia teen in connection with a crash that killed a woman.
Prince William County Police said the crash happened July 24, critically injuring a woman who died 11 days after the incident. Officials indicated that an investigation showed that the teenager was at fault after crashing into the woman’s car at the intersection of Rollins Ford Road and Estate Manor Drive in Bristow.
The woman was later identified as Judy A. Isom, 67, of Centreville, Virginia.
Police said the teenager, who was driving a 2018 Subaru Forester, stopped at a stop sign and then drove into the intersection, colliding with Isom’s 2009 Chevrolet Malibu.
The teenager, whose name was not released because of the person’s age, has been charged with reckless driving.
