Herndon woman killed in crash at Leeds Manor Road intersection

Monday, Sep. 22 | By Mark Grandstaff | Google+
A four-vehicle collision at the intersection of Leeds Manor Road and U.S. 55 killed a Herndon woman Saturday.

Laura Humphrey died from a collision after she tried to cross U.S. 55 to get to the Interstate 66 on-ramp, said Virginia State Trooper Paul Domingoes.

At 3:50 p.m., Humphrey drove a 2007 Honda Accord north on Leeds Manor Road, stopping at the intersection. She started to cross U.S. 55 when Susan Kirk, driving a westbound 2008 Dodge Dakota, crashed into Humprey's Accord. Kirk was driving the speed limit at 55 miles per hour, Domingoes said.

The force of the collision spun Humphrey's car into two other vehicles, which had stopped in the eastbound lane of U.S. 55: the 2012 Honda Odyssey of Susan Leopold and the 2011 BMW of Sanju Rajan.

Two bystanders performed CPR on Humphrey before medics arrived, Domingoes said. Humphrey was taken to Warren Memorial Hospital, where she died from her injuries, he said. Ambulances took three other passengers to the hospital: two from Humphrey's vehicle and one from Kirk's.

Everyone involved was wearing their seatbelts, Domingoes said. Police are still investigating the collision, he said, but none of the drivers were texting or drinking. Criminal charges are pending, he said.
