Police Investigate Fatal Crash in McLean

Mclean Police District – Police were called to the area of Old Dominion Drive and Dolley Madison Boulevard on Monday, October 28 around 3 p.m. for the report of a crash. Detectives from the Crash Reconstruction Unit responded to the scene. Their initial investigation revealed that a 2001 Toyota Sienna, being driven by an 81-year-old Falls Church woman, was travelling north on Dolley Madison Boulevard. There was a 103-year-old McLean woman in the front passenger seat of the Sienna. A 2008 Audi sedan and a 2008 Toyota Camry were in the westbound, left turn lanes of Old Dominion Drive, waiting to turn left on to southbound Dolley Madison Boulevard. The driver of the Sienna apparently lost control of the vehicle while attempting to turn right onto Old Dominion Drive. The Sienna jumped the center median on Old Dominion Drive, struck the Audi and then struck the Camry. Both occupants of the Sienna were transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital. The passenger in the Sienna, Katie Grosse, was pronounced dead at approximately 6:15 p.m.

Alcohol was not a factor in this crash. Detectives are still attempting to determine if speed was a factor. The investigation continues.
