McLean Woman Dies in Car Accident

An 81-year-old McLean woman is dead following a car accident in her driveway yesterday.

Fairfax County Police responded to the 1800 block of Kirby Road for the report of a crash yesterday.  That morning, according to police reports, 81-year-old Beverly Sargent was in her car in her driveway getting ready to head to a local service station. She had arranged for another driver to follow her and bring her home. She got out and walked to the rear of her car to make sure the other car, a 2002 Toyota Camry, was behind her. The 86-year-old man in the Camry started his car and put it in gear. His car started to roll forward and he was not able to stop before striking Sargent. She was transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead shortly after 3 p.m.

Police say speed and alcohol are not factors in this crash.
