Fatal Crash in Franconia

            Franconia Police District – Police responded to a crash on Franconia Road near the intersection of Governors Pond Circle on Sunday, September 9 shortly after 9:30 a.m. 

            The preliminary investigation determined that a 1994 Infiniti J30 was traveling eastbound on Franconia Road and crossed the double yellow line near the intersection of Norton Road. The Infiniti passed another vehicle and then re-entered the eastbound traffic lane. The driver of the Infiniti, 65-year-old Billy Ray Allen of 5501 Justis place in Alexandria, lost control of his vehicle, entered the westbound lanes of Franconia Road and struck a 2002 Cadillac Deville being driven by a 53-year-old Alexandria man. After the initial impact, the Infiniti continued onto the gravel shoulder and into a culvert where it struck several large rocks and flipped over before coming to rest.

            Allen was transported to a local hospital and was pronounced dead approximately three hours later.

            Speed is believed to be a factor in this crash; alcohol is not.

            The investigation continues.
