Stormy weather may have been a factor in a crash Monday afternoon that took the life of a woman. Fairfax County detectives say speed may also have been a factor.
It was raining when the crash occurred around 2:30 p.m. on Rolling Road near Hunter Village Drive in Springfield. Crash investigators say 70-year-old Mina Fowler lost control of her Honda Civic, crossed the median and hit a Kia Sportage driven by a 33-year-old man from Woodbridge. Fowler died in the crash. The driver of the Kia was taken to the hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life threatening.
