Loudoun County woman dies in Christmas Day fatal crash

A woman involved in a two-vehicle crash in Loudoun County on Christmas Day succumbed to her injuries in the hospital Thursday, according to a news release from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Annalee S. Marshall, 20, of Adamstown, Md., was driving north on Route 15 near Black Walnut Lane around 12:45 p.m. when she ran off the shoulder and over-corrected into the opposite lane, police said. Her 1997 Honda Civic was struck by a 2005 Acura driven by a Pennsylvania man.

Marshall had been airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital. Two passengers in the Acura were treated for minor injuries, and a third is at Inova in stable condition, police said.

The crash remains under investigation.

Marshall’s family and friends could not immediately be reached late Thursday.

Marshall is listed as a Virginia Tech student who made the dean’s list in veterinary sciences, according to information on the school’s Web site. A message on a club group Facebook page called “VT Help Save the Next Girl” — an anti-violence group formed after the 2009 abduction and slaying of former student Morgan Harrington — said that Marshall’s presence would be missed.

“Annalee was a smart, passionate, and driven young woman,” the post says. “She aspired to go to Vet School. She was a kind-hearted person who did a lot of good. Annalee, you will be missed dearly by your family and friends.”
