A baby that was delivered prematurely after her mother was involved in a car crash in Fairfax County died Sunday evening, Fairfax police said.
The baby girl was born after a Mazda MX3 coupe struck a Toyota Avalon being driven by the newborn’s father, police said. The head-on collision occurred early Sunday morning on the Fairfax County Parkway, north of Braddock Road.
The newborn’s parents, who are from Camp Hill, Penn., suffered injuries that were not life-threatening. The driver of the Mazda was killed, police said. The deceased was identified as 44-year-old Abraham Aragon of Manassas, Va.
A preliminary investigation indicated that Aragon was driving northbound in the southbound lanes of the Fairfax County Parkway. Police said other cars veered to avoid colliding with the Mazda before it struck the Toyota.
Police are exploring whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.
