Alexandria Woman Dies in Head-on Crash

A 61-year-old woman died Monday morning, Nov. 22, following a crash that occurred at 5:56 a.m. on the Fairfax County Parkway at Ox Road. Elizabeth Wallgren of Alexandria was the driver and lone occupant of a 2013 Honda Civic traveling northbound on the Fairfax County Parkway. Preliminarily, detectives determined Wallgren lost control of the vehicle, crossed over the grass median and struck a 2014 Subaru Crosstrek driving in the southbound lanes, resulting in a head-on collision.  Subsequently, the driver of a 2013 Chevrolet Van, also driving southbound, crashed into the Subaru. Wallgren was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash. The driver of the Subaru was taken to the hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening and the other driver remained on scene.  

Preliminarily, detectives from our Crash Reconstruction Unit do not believe that speed and alcohol are factors in the crash, which remains under investigation.
