No charges will be brought in connection with a Thursday afternoon accident at the intersection of Old Dominion Road and Bellview Road in McLean, in which a Leesburg woman was killed, Fairfax County police said Thursday.
Sow-Hoong Hon, 42, was driving a 1999 Honda Accord northbound on Bellview Road shortly before 1:30 p.m. The Honda failed to stop at the stop sign before entering the eastbound lanes of Old Dominion Drive, where a 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser, struck the driver’s door of the Honda, police said.
Police would not release the name of the 50-year-old McLean woman, who was driving the Land Cruiser.
Bellview is a narrow winding steep road with hairpin curves and a 20 mph speed limit which runs from Georgetown Pike and Towlston Road. It is the address of primarily large estate-type homes.
Freda Jones who lives on Bellview near the accident site said, "It is a terrible intersection. In the first three weeks (that we lived here) there were two accidents," she said. She did not see the accident.
"I tell my sons all the time to watch out for that intersection," she said. "I tell them to look five times before you pull out."
A younger son sleeps in a bedroom on the front of the house. "My son is awakened often in the morning" by the sound of a accident at the intersection of Bellview and Old Dominion, she said.
Both drivers were transported to local hospitals Wednesday following the accident, police said. Hon was pronounced dead a short time later; the driver of the SUV sustained non life-threatening injuries. Her condition today could not be determined.
Neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors in this crash, police said.
Hon's family received friends and loved ones Sunday at the Loudoun Funeral Chapel in Leesburg. The family asks that memorial contributions be sent to Alan Kulaga for the benefit of James Kulaga, care of First Virginia Community Bank 7900 Sudley Road, Suite 100 Manassas, VA 20109.
Hon’s obituary can be seen on the chapel's website.
