A Great Falls man was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Friday (Nov. 11), Fairfax County police say.
Brian Christian Bernhart, 49, died after his Toyota Camry went off the roadway as he was driving near the intersection of Arnon Chapel Road and Arnon Lake Drive.
According to police, Bernhart “overcorrected” when he crossed a double yellow line and hit a tree.
He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
“Detectives continue to investigate to determine whether speed and alcohol were factors in the crash,” the Fairfax County Police Department said in a news release published Saturday (Nov. 12).

Bernhart is the 18th non-pedestrian to die in a crash on county roads this year, surpassing the 16 fatalities recorded at this point in 2021.
