Lorton man dead after SUV struck by Dodge Ram

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.

Police are continuing to investigate.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call 703-280-0543.
