An 82-year-old driver was killed on Valentine’s Day in a crash involving four vehicles in Woodbridge, police said.

Officials with the Prince William County police said in a statement that the crash happened just before 11 a.m. on Route 1 near Wigglesworth Way.

Police say that John Joseph Angevine, of Beltsville, was driving north on Route 1 when his Lincoln Town Car crashed into a Jeep Grand Cherokee that had veered into oncoming traffic after colliding with a Hyundai Elantra that had pulled out of a parking lot, crossing the southbound lanes. After being hit, Angevine’s car then crashed into the fourth vehicle, a Mercedes GLE.

Angevine was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The three other drivers, all Woodbridge residents, were taken to a hospital. The Hyundai driver was treated for minor injuries; the two others received serious injuries.

Officials said “alcohol and drug use do not appear to be factors in the crash,” but they’re still considering whether speed played a role.
