Fairfax police investigating fatal crash in Herndon involving tow truck


A 30-year-old Herndon man was killed in a crash involving a tow truck on Wednesday night.


Police were called to the Centreville and McLearen roads around 9 p.m. for a crash involving a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a 2015 Ford Super Duty tow truck.


A preliminary investigation determined the Jeep was traveling northbound on Centreville Road when the driver turned onto eastbound McLearen Road, crossed the center median and crashed into a tow truck traveling in the westbound lanes, Fairfax County police said.


The driver, Jonathan Szott, 30, of Herndon, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Detectives are working to determine if speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
