Fatal Crash in Centreville

Sully Police District – Police responded to the report of a crash on Virginia Route 28 (Centreville Road) at Old Centreville Road around 2 p.m. on Wednesday, November 20; Crash Reconstruction Detectives were called to the scene.

During the initial investigation, detectives determined that a 1996 Ford station wagon, driven by a 16-year-old, Centreville girl, was stopped at a red light in the westbound through lane of Old Centreville Road at Route 28. When the light turned green, the Ford started moving into the intersection. A 2004 Chevrolet pickup truck, driven by 20-year-old, Ronald Matthew Kendrick of Warrenton, was northbound on Route 28, approaching the intersection of Old Centreville Road. The Chevrolet proceeded into the intersection, against the red light and struck the front of the Ford. The impact caused the Chevrolet to rotate and flip. Kendrick was apparently not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the pickup and landed in the roadway in front of it. He was transported by Fairfax County Police Medevac Helicopter, to Inova Fairfax Hospital and was pronounced dead a short time later. The driver and a 16-year-old, female passenger in the Ford received only minor injuries.

Detectives are trying to determine if speed and/or alcohol were factors in this crash. The investigation is ongoing.
