SPRINGFIELD, Va. - A 17-year-old boy is dead after an accident that occurred as teens raced down Old Keene Mill Road after school Tuesday.
Fairfax County police say Adam Foote, 17, of Springfield, died Tuesday night.
Police say the 17-year-old drivers of a Ford Mustang and a Chevrolet Camaro were racing 2:45 p.m. Tuesday. At the same time a Ford dump truck was trying to make a left hand turn from westbound Old Keene Mill Road onto southbound Huntsman Boulevard. The Mustang smashed into its rear end. Foote was a passenger in the Mustang.
Officer Bud Walker, spokesman for the Fairfax County Police, says the Mustang struck the truck on the passenger side rear tire, spinning the Mustang clockwise about 75 feet from the point of impact. Police say the truck then rotated 180 degrees clockwise where it impacted a 1996 Honda Accord that was red light on Huntsman Boulevard.
The Camaro crashed into a light pole.
The driver of the Mustang suffered minor injuries. The other drivers were not hurt.
Police say alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
