Fatal Crash in Springfield

Franconia Police District – Police responded to the report of a crash on Wednesday, December 4 shortly after 11 p.m.Brian Benjamin Blaine, 30, of Manassas, was driving his 2001 Honda S2000 convertible southbound on the Franconia-Springfield Parkway, approaching Spring Village Drive. Witnesses reported that the Honda seemed to be racing a dark colored, newer model Infiniti. Both vehicles apparently passed each other several times. Blaine lost control of the Honda as it exited the curve just prior to Spring Village Drive. The vehicle traveled off the roadway to the right, struck an embankment and a tree which redirected the car back onto the Parkway. The Honda then rolled over and came to rest, upright, in the southbound lanes of the Parkway. The Honda and the Infiniti did not appear to make contact at any time.

Blaine was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital and was pronounced dead shortly before 8 a.m. on Thursday, December 5.

Speed was a factor in this crash. It is unknown if alcohol was a factor and the crash is still under investigation.
