FCPD investigates crash on Walker Road/FCPD

A man was killed Saturday morning in a one-car crash on Walker Road in Great Falls.

Officers from the Fairfax County Police’s Reston District Station responded  to the 1100 block of Walker Road around 7:30 a.m. They found a 2004 convertible that had been involved in the crash.

Officer determined that a 28-year-old man had been driving the car northbound on Walker Road, when, for an unknown reason, the vehicle left the roadway, hit a dirt berm, overturned several times, and came to rest.

The driver, identified as Henry H. Sterne of Alexandria, was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries and pronounced deceased by medical staff. There were no other occupants in the vehicle.

Preliminary information suggests that speed appears to be a factor in this crash.

    Rest in peace, Henry Sterne. My condolences to your family, friends and acquaintances.

    To those who drive down Walker Rd/Beech Mill Rd, be careful. It might be fun to haul butt down a country lane, but it’s also dangerous.
