A Fairfax man died Sunday morning, Nov. 14, from injuries sustained in a vehicle crash the previous night. Fairfax County police identified him as Andre Newman, 65. The incident occurred Saturday at 11:37 p.m. Newman was the driver and sole occupant of a 2012 Nissan Sentra traveling east on Georgetown Pike in McLean.
Police say the driver of a 2019 Range Rover was trying to turn left onto Langley Lane from westbound Georgetown Pike and turned in front of Newman. The result was a sideswipe crash, causing Newman’s vehicle to leave the road and come to a stop in a ditch.
The Range Rover driver, along with three juvenile passengers, weren’t injured and remained at the scene. Newman was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and succumbed to them the next morning.
Preliminarily, detectives from the Crash Reconstruction Unit don’t believe speed or alcohol are factors in the crash. The investigation remains active, and details of the investigation will be presented to the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office for review.
