A Virginia man is dead after his 2018 Ford Escape was struck by a speeding driver who allegedly ran a red light at the intersection of Ox Road and Hooes Road, police in Fairfax County said.
Brian Beyreuther, 45, of Lorton, died after the 8:40 p.m. Thursday crash.
Police said Beyreuther had a green light when he was making the left turn from Hooes Road to southbound Ox Road.
“Robert Derifield, 42, of Woodbridge, was traveling north on Ox Road, driving a 2019 Dodge Ram, when he disregarded the red signal and struck the Ford Escape,” a news release from the Fairfax County Police Department said.
“Speed appears to be a factor in the crash.”
Derifield was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.
Police are continuing to investigate.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call 703-280-0543.
