Dashcam Video Captures Speeding Teen Nearly Hitting Officer In Car Crash

Just before 12 p.m. on Monday, a patrol officer was conducting a routine traffic stop on southbound Fairfax County Parkway.

As the officer was approaching the driver from the passenger side, another car speeding northbound crossed over the median and smashed into the same car. The officer just barely jumps out of the way to avoid being hit as the speeding driver crashes into the pulled-over car.

He then calls for backup help and begins checking both drivers for injuries. Fairfax County Police Chief Kevin Davis said it is a miracle the officer is alive, and only sustained minor injuries. The chief said the black 2018 BMW M3 that caused the crash was driven by a 17-year-old going over 120 miles per hour.

The adult driver who had been pulled over on the traffic stop was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries. They have since been released.

The teen driver and their two passengers also sustained minor injuries. The teen driver accused in the head-on crash stayed at the scene and is now facing charges for reckless driving.

The Fairfax County Police Department hopes parents and guardians consider using this video as an opportunity to have a conversation with teen drivers about how their driving behavior can affect the lives of others.
