A 70-year-old woman died after a single-vehicle crash in the Herndon area earlier this month.

Flavia Caero, a Herndon resident, died three days after she crashed on Aug. 11 on Dranesville Road.

Police said she was traveling north on Dranesville Road near Shallow Ford Road in a 2018 Toyota Corolla when she lost control of the car and struck a retaining wall.

“She was taken to the hospital and sadly passed away away three days after the crash,” the Fairfax County Police Department said in a press release today (Monday).

Police do not believe speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.

The crash is the 10th non-pedestrian-related fatal crash in the county to date. Last year, there were 10 such total crashes.
