Updated at 8 p.m. on 2/7/2024 — A third person — Yan Zhou, 68, of Burke — has died as a result of Sunday’s crash at the Braddock Road and Bradfield Drive intersection in Burke, police said. There have now been five deaths from vehicle crashes in Fairfax County this year.

Updated at 4:55 p.m. on 2/6/2024 — One of the two people hospitalized with serious injuries from Sunday’s crash on Braddock Road has died, bringing Fairfax County’s traffic death toll for the year up to four people, police announced today (Tuesday).

Hong Tang, 63, of Fairfax was a passenger in the 2006 Lexus RX330I that crashed into a BMW at the Bradfield Drive intersection. Another Lexus passenger is still in the hospital.

Earlier: Two people remain hospitalized in the wake of yesterday’s fatal crash on Braddock Road in Burke.

Fairfax County police officers were called to the intersection of Braddock Road and Bradfield Drive around 9:42 a.m. on Sunday (Feb. 4) after the driver of an eastbound 2024 BMW X6 on Braddock Road crashed into a 2006 Lexus RX330I that was turning left into the westbound lanes.

Yun Hu, 72, of Annandale was one of five people in the Lexus. They were all taken to a hospital, where Hu died, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

The BMW’s two occupants were also transported to a hospital.

“Two passengers remain hospitalized,” the FCPD said. “The other four passengers were treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released from the hospital a short time later.”

The circumstances of the crash are still under investigation, though police say speed and alcohol aren’t believed to have been factors.

Area residents told WUSA9 that speeding has long been an issue on Braddock Road, where there have now been 13 fatalities since 2011, according to Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles data.

Hu was the third person to die in a vehicle crash in Fairfax County this year. The FCPD also reported this afternoon that an 85-year-old man had died from the injuries he sustained in a Jan. 24 crash on Clifton Road, and on Jan. 3, a woman died after crashing into a tow truck on I-66 that was responding to an earlier multi-vehicle collision in the Centreville area.
