Fatal Crash in Franklin Farm Area


            Fair Oaks Police District – Around 3:50 p.m. on Friday, October 4, a 19-year-old driver of a 2012 Honda Civic was traveling westbound on McLearen Road, near Cobra Drive. For reasons unknown, the Honda drove off the road and then reentered the roadway heading west in the eastbound lanes of McLearen Road and struck a 2000 Honda Civic head-on, which was driven by 64-year-old Chris Reams of Sterling, Virginia. Both drivers were transported to a local hospital where Mr. Reams died.

            The exact cause of the crash is still being investigated by the police crash reconstruction unit and charges may be pending. However, at this time, it does not appear that alcohol is factor.
