The crash occurred Friday, Nov. 25, at 1:19 a.m. on Loudoun County Parkway at the intersection of Gloucester Parkway.
According to witnesses, a 2006 Ford pickup truck was traveling north on Loudoun County Parkway when it failed to stop for a red light at the intersection of Gloucester Parkway.

A fifth passenger, a woman, was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where she died later Friday morning. The 3-year-old was not in a child safety seat and was ejected from the vehicle in the crash, according to the report.
The driver of the pickup truck, Nakia P. Wilkerson, was transported to Inova Loudoun Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. She was charged for failing to obey a traffic light.
