Man Found Unconscious in Car Dies at Hospital; Police Investigating

Fairfax County Police Department shieldThe Fairfax County Police Department is investigating after a man found unresponsive in a car down an embankment died at Reston Hospital Center.

According to a release from FCPD, 30-year-old Cory Lee Boback of Sterling was found at about 9 p.m. Wednesday in a car off Hiddenbrook Drive near Dranesville Road, in the Herndon area. Boback was transported to the hospital in life-threatening condition and pronounced dead a short time later.

Police say their preliminary investigation suggests the car was stopped at the light at the intersection of Hiddenbrook Drive and Dranesville Road when Boback may have passed out and the car rolled backward, down the embankment and off the road, without striking anything.

The incident remains under investigation, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.
