Reston, VA

A 45-year-old man has been charged with drunk driving following a fatal crash that took place in Reston on Sunday.

Fairfax Police issued a statement indicating the department is still investigating the crash, which took place at the intersection of Baron Cameron Avenue and Lake Fairfax Drive around 2:30 p.m.

“A preliminary investigation revealed a 1987 Toyota MR2 was traveling south on Baron Cameron Avenue, approaching Lake Fairfax Drive, when it crossed the center median and struck a 2008 Porsche traveling northbound,” police said in the statement.

The driver, 45-year-old Jose Jimenez-Yapura, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was arrested, as police said alcohol appears to have been a factor in the crash. He has been charged with driving while intoxicated. His passenger, however, later identified as 42-year-old Miguel Jiminez of Falls Church, was taken to the hospital, but later died of his injuries.

The driver of the Porsche, a 16-year-old, was not injured in the crash.

Police are still investigating, and said they are unsure if speed may have also been a factor in the crash.
