(Updated at 9:55 a.m. on 3/17/2023) The Fairfax County Police Department has investigated a three-car crash in Lorton from November that its detectives only recently learned was fatal.

Detectives were notified last week that Alverda Boyce, 74, of Woodbridge died on Nov. 29 from injuries sustained in a Nov. 2 crash at the intersection of Ox Road and Palmer Drive, the police department said today (Thursday).

According to police, investigators determined that Boyce was driving south in a 2020 Honda Civic on Ox Road (Route 123) when she attempted to turn left onto Palmer with the traffic signal showing a flashing yellow arrow.

“The driver of a 2017 Lexus ES 350 travelling north on Ox Road [was] proceeding through the intersection with a green light,” the FCPD said. “Boyce turned in front of the Lexus resulting in the crash. While attempting to avoid the crash, the Lexus struck a 2021 GMC Sierra.”

Officers arrived on the scene around 7:30 p.m., and Boyce was transported to a hospital, where she died.

According to an FCPD spokesperson, Boyce’s injuries were not believed to be life-threatening at the time of the crash.

“She unfortunately passed 27 days after the crash,” Second Lt. Lance Hamilton said. “Our detectives received the Medical Examiner’s report last week which determined her passing was a result of the injuries sustained in the crash.”

The FCPD has now recorded 20 non-pedestrian crash fatalities for 2022, exceeding the 18 such deaths reported in 2021.

The Ox Road and Palmer Drive intersection was previously the site of a deadly crash on May 31, 2021, when Fairfax Station resident Paul Kalland was hit by a driver turning into the Shoppes of Lorton Valley shopping center.

There were six crashes at that intersection last year, resulting in injuries to six people, according to Virginia crash data. In total, Fairfax County had 67 traffic fatalities in 2022, including 32 pedestrians, and there have been three fatal crashes in 2023 so far.
