Stafford Teen Charged in Fatal Crash

A Fredericksburg man died from injuries sustained after a teen allegedly crossed into oncoming traffic.

Prince William County Police have charged a 17-year-old Stafford female with reckless driving after a crash in Dumfries on Sept. 29.

Her court date and bond information were not readily available.  

Prince William County Police spokesperson Jonathan Perok said the 17-year-old female was driving southbound on Dumfries Road, near Talon Drive, around 11 p.m., when she crossed into the northbound, oncoming traffic.

The car struck four other vehicles, including a 2000 Mercury Marquis, Officer Jonathan Perok, a public information officer with the Prince William County Police Department, said in a press release. 

Qasim S. Alaway, 51, of Fredericksburg, died from serious injuries sustained during the crash, police said. Alaway was transported to an area hospital on Sept. 29 where he died the next morning. 

The driver of the Jetta also apparently struck a 2012 Dodge Journey driven by a Pennsylvania man, a 2000 Saab 93 driven by a 27-year-old Dale City woman, and a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica driven by a 26-year-old Dumfries woman. They did not report any injuries.
