One person is dead, and two others have been taken to a hospital in the wake of a two-vehicle crash this morning (Tuesday) in Bailey’s Crossroads.

The crash involved Honda Accord going northbound on South George Mason Drive that hit a Volkswagen Jetta turning into Skyline Plaza, the Fairfax County Police Department said at 6:28 a.m.

According to police, a passenger in the Volkswagen died at the scene. The drivers of both cars were transported to the hospital.

South George Mason’s northbound lanes and one southbound lane were closed for about two hours while first responders cleaned up the scene. The crash remains under investigation by detectives with the FCPD’s Crash Reconstruction Unit.

This is the fourth non-pedestrian fatality from a vehicle crash in Fairfax County this year, following a death in Franconia on May 12, according to FCPD records.
