FAIRFAX, Va. – The 7-girl-old girl critically hurt in a car accident in Fairfax City Tuesday night has died.
Victoria Williams passed away at Inova Fairfax Hospital, following her mother Dejon Williams and younger sister 5-year-old Faith Williams who died in the crash, according to Fairfax Police.
City of Fairfax Police Sgt. Joseph Johnson tells WTOP Dejon L’Air Williams was driving a 2001 Honda Civic that hit a 2002 Honda Odyssey minivan pulling out of a K-Mart parking lot at about 10:50 p.m. Tuesday.
Hamidallah Nabilada,38, of Woodbridge was driving the Honda Odyssey at the time of the crash and is still in critical condition, according to police.
Court records show Williams, 27, had been convicted of reckless driving twice before and had numerous speeding violations, including driving 87 mph in a 55 mph zone. She was convicted of driving with a suspended license in 2006.
The crash on Lee Highway occurred near Jermantown Road, just inside the city limits. About 100 to 200 yards prior to the crash, inside Fairfax County, police say the Civic sideswiped another vehicle and hit a median strip.
Williams, of Cross Junction, Va., was pronounced dead at the scene. Her 5- year-old daughter, Faith Williams, was pronounced dead at Inova Fairfax Hospital.
Excessive speed caused the accident, police say, and it was not known whether those involved were wearing seatbelts.
The incident is the first fatal crash in Fairfax City in 2012.
