The Daily Courier - - WORLD -

FAIR­FAX, Va. — Po­lice say a 12year-old boy jumped from an over­pass above In­ter­state 66 in north­ern Vir­ginia and fell onto a car, killing the driver.

The in­ci­dent took place Satur­day af­ter­noon in Fair­fax County. Vir­ginia State Po­lice spokes­woman Corinne Geller said in a state­ment Sun­day af­ter­noon that the boy landed on a Ford Es­cape and the im­pact in­ca­pac­i­tated the ve­hi­cle’s driver.

The state­ment says the front-seat pas­sen­ger steered the ve­hi­cle off the in­ter­state and the car came to a stop on the left shoul­der.

Geller says the driver of the Ford, 22-year-old Marisa W. Har­ris of Ol­ney, Mary­land, died at the scene. The front-seat pas­sen­ger wasn’t hurt.

The boy was taken to a lo­cal hos­pi­tal for treat­ment of life-threat­en­ing in­juries.
