SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Authorities say a 10-month-old boy and a 12-year-old girl are among the three people killed in a two-vehicle crash in Spotsylvania County Sunday. Four others were injured.
Troopers say it occurred just before 3 p.m. in the 6200 block of Courthouse Road.
According to Virginia State Police, a 2002 Honda Accord was traveling west on Courthouse Road when it ran off of the right shoulder. The driver over-corrected, which caused the Honda to cross the center-line, and collide with an eastbound 2012 Acura MDX.
The driver of the Honda, Denia A. Brizuela-Pascual, 22, of Woodbridge, Va., was transported to Mary Washington Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries. Brizuela-Pascual was wearing a seat belt, VSP said.
Three of the Honda’s four passengers died at the scene. They were later identified as 32-year-old Ana D. Pascual, a 12-year-old female, and a 10-month-old male, all of Woodbridge, Va. The fourth passenger, a juvenile female, was flown to VCU Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries. The adult and juveniles were in seat belts and the infant was properly secured in a child safety restraint, according to VSP.
The driver of the Acura, a 58-year-old male, and a passenger, a 55-year-old female, both of Fairfax, Va., were transported to Mary Washington Hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
The Virginia State Police Culpeper Division’s Crash Reconstruction Team is assisting with the ongoing crash investigation. The Spotsylvania County Fire and EMS, Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office and VDOT assisted state police at the scene.
