UPDATE: Manassas Man Charged in Fatal Alexandria Crash
Virginia State Police said alcohol and speed were factors in the single-car crash.
Updated Friday, at 5 p.m.
Javed Hussaini, of the Manassas area, appeared in Alexandria General District Court Friday morning, where he was notified of his right to an attorney to represent him on DUI manslaughter charges.
Chief Judge Becky J. Moore set a $50,000 bond and required Hussaini to submit to electronic monitoring and surrender his passport.
The case was continued to 9 a.m. on August 24, 2012, so Hussaini could obtain legal counsel.
A single-car crash at 2:41 a.m. Thursday on the southbound ramp from Interstate 395 to westbound Route 236 (Little River Turnpike) has left one person dead, according to Virginia State Police.
Virginia State Police have identified Javed Hussaini, 25, of Manassas, as the driver involved in Thursday morning’s crash. Police have determined that alcohol and speed were factors in the crash, which killed a Chantilly man.
VSP said Hussaini was traveling through the I-395 southbound ramp when his Audi A8 ran off the road, spun around and struck a tree. The car struck the tree hard enough to split it in half and cause it to jump over the guardrail and land on the 3B (Little River Turnpike) exit ramp. The two passengers in the back seat were ejected from the vehicle.
A. Tawab Ebadi, 25, of Chantilly, one of the back seat passengers, died at the scene. The other passengers in the vehicle, Ilyas Qualandri, 23, of Springfield, and Fernanda Ferrufino, 23, of Alexandria, were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Hussaini was transported to Fairfax Inova Hospital and then to the Alexandria Adult Detention Center. He has been charged with DUI-related manslaughter.
Police said the scene was cleared and lanes re-opened by 8:55 a.m. on Thursday.
The crash is still under investigation.
