News release from the Fairfax County Police Department
Mason Police District – A woman died overnight as a result of injuries from a crash that occurred just after three yesterday afternoon in the 2900 block of Peyton Randolph Drive. Our Crash Reconstruction Unit detectives have preliminarily determined that 74-year-old Amolia Lozano, of Falls Church, was exiting the passenger side of a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Jeep drifted backwards causing Lozano to fall into the roadway. The driver, not realizing the car was still in reverse, accelerated causing it to hit Lozano as well as another unoccupied vehicle. Lozano was transported to a hospital; she was pronounced dead late last night. The driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with detectives. Neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors. At this point, no charges are expected.
Anyone with information about this crash is asked to contact our Crash Reconstruction Unit at 703-280-0543.
