A 20-year-old driver was killed Wednesday after he allegedly ran a red light at a Fairfax County intersection and struck another vehicle, police said.
Ronald M. Kendrick of Warrenton was northbound on Route 28 in a Chevrolet pickup truck around 2 p.m. when he entered the intersection of Old Centreville Road against the light, Fairfax County police said.
The pickup truck struck a Ford station wagon being driven by a 16-year-old girl, police said. The force of the impact caused the Chevrolet to rotate and flip. Kendrick was ejected from the truck and landed in the roadway, police said. He apparently was not wearing his seatbelt.
Kendrick was airlifted to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. The 16-year-old driver of the Ford and a passenger suffered minor injuries.
Detectives are trying to determine whether speed and/or alcohol were factors in the crash. The investigation is ongoing.
