Virginia State Police investigating fatal crash in Frederick County


Virginia State Police Trooper S.R. Marks is investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash in Frederick County. The crash occurred Saturday at 8:45 p.m. on Route 641 (Double Church Road) at ½ of a mile north of Route 639 (Refuge Church Road).

A 1992 Honda Civic was traveling south on Rt. 641 when the driver lost control of the vehicle and crossed the center-line, ran off the left side of the road before striking several trees.

The driver of the Honda, Gavin P. Tylen, 22, of Stevens City, Va., died at the scene as a result of his injuries. Tylen was not wearing his seat belt.

A passenger, Jacob M. Stevens, 18, also of Stephens City, Va., died at the scene as a result of his injuries. Steven was not wearing his seat belt.

Speed is a factor in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
