Fatal Crash In Oak Hill Area

Police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred in the early morning hours of Sunday, April 24.

After being called to the Fairfax County Parkway near West Ox Road at around 1:50 a.m. for a reported crash, officers located a 1988 Oldsmobile Bravada in the backyard of a home in the 13100 block of Lou Alice Way.

An investigation determined the vehicle was traveling north on the Fairfax County Parkway, just past the intersection of West Ox Road, when the driver lost control. The Bravada went off the left side of the road and rotated counter-clockwise, traveled across the grass median and the southbound lanes of the Parkway then began to roll as it reached the shoulder of the road.

It continued up the embankment, took out some trees and crashed through a wooden fence. The Bravada came to rest on its roof in the backyard of the home.

The driver, Arturo Cruz Zaldivar, 22, of Cocquina Drive in Reston, was pronounced dead at the scene. A 20-year-old male passenger was treated for minor injuries. Zaldivar was not wearing a seatbelt; the passenger was. This crash investigation is continuing. Speed and alcohol appear to be factors, police said.
