Fatal Crash in Kingstowne Area 

Franconia Police District – On Sunday, January 29 around 1:15 p.m., police responded to a crash on Kingstowne Boulevard. A 25-year-old man was driving a 2011 Ford Mustang northbound on Kingstowne Boulevard. A 77-year-old man was driving a 1994 Toyota Camry southbound on Kingstowne Boulevard. As both vehicles approached the intersection with Kingstowne Village Parkway, the 77-year-old driver attempted to turn left from Kingstowne Boulevard onto Kingstowne Village Parkway and was struck on the passenger side by the 25-year-old driver.
