Two killed in Fauquier County head-on crash

A woman and 8-year-old child were killed in a head-on collision near Warrenton Saturday morning on Vint Hill Road (Route 215), about 100 yards east of Route 652, next to Vint Hill Farms Park.

Sharon Rose, 54, of Manassas Park, was driving westbound in a 2005 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck on Vint Hill Road at about 8:20 a.m. when it crossed the center line and crashed head on into an eastbound 2003 Toyota Avalon, according to Virginia State Police spokesperson Sergeant F. Les Tyler.

The Avalon was driven by Eric Henry Mathews, 45, of Haymarket. Two passengers in the Avalon, Lori Ann Mathews, 46, and Reign Lewis Spencer, 8, both of Haymarket, died in the accident.

Both drivers, Sharon Rose and Eric Mathews, were flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital where they are in unknown condition.

Sgt. Tyler says it doesn’t appear that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. All drivers and passengers were wearing their seatbelts.

The crash was investigated by Virginia State Police Trooper D.J. Mabie and the Virginia State Police Accident Reconstruction Team.

Units from the Virginia State Police, Fauquier County Sheriff, Fauquier County Fire and Rescue, and Prince William County Fire and Rescue responded to the accident.

The intersection of Route 215 and Route 652 is just inside Fauquier County near the border with Prince William County.
