The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

I don't really have anything to add to this one:

Fatal crash in Lorton

A Woodbridge man has been charged with aggravated involuntary manslaughter and drunk driving in a two-car crash that left a 53-year-old Groveton man dead.

At about 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 3, Robert L. Thomas was driving northbound on Route 1 at the intersection of the ramp to Interstate 95 in Lorton. At the same time, Alfredo Martinez Rivera was driving in the southbound lanes of Route 1. Rivera lost control of his 2006 Pontiac and drove over the concrete median and straight into Thomas' 1996 Saturn, police said.

Thomas was pronounced dead at the scene.

Rivera, of 13102 Kumar Road, was treated for injuries not considered life-threatening. He is now being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.

This is the 11th traffic fatality in Fairfax County this year. There were 33 fatalities at this time last year, police said.
