Fatal Clarke County Crash Injures Purcellville Residents

Two Purcellville residents were seriously injured in a fatal, head-on crash that happened in Clarke County on Sunday night.

Virginia State Police Senior Trooper D.R. Gray is investigating the crash that occurred at 8:50 p.m. June 16 on Rt. 340 just south of Annfield Road.

A 2004 Honda Accord was traveling south on Rt. 340 when it crossed the center-line and collided with a northbound 2017 Chevy Silverado.

The driver of the Honda, Jeffrey A. Woodward, 33, of White Post, died at the scene as a result of his injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt, according to the report.

The driver of the Chevy, a 58-year old Purcellville man, and his passenger, a 59-year-old Purcellville woman, both suffered injuries described as serious, but non-life threatening. The driver was transported to Winchester Medical Center. The woman was airlifted to Fairfax Inova Hospital. Both were wearing seat belts.

Speed is being considered a factor due to a prior engagement with the Clarke County Sheriff’s Office, according to the report.
