The driver of the Honda, Jeffrey A. Woodward, 33, of White Post, Va., died at the scene as a result of his injuries. Woodward was not wearing a seat belt.

The driver of the Chevy, a 58 year old male, of Purcellville, Va., suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries, and was transported to Winchester Medical Center. The driver was wearing a seat-belt.

A passenger in the Chevy, a 59 year old female, also of Purcellville, Va., suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries, and was flown to Fairfax to INOVA Hospital. The passenger was wearing a seat-belt.

Speed is being considered a factor due to the prior engagement with the Clarke County Sheriff’s Office.

The crash remains under investigation.

Virginia State Police was assisted by VSP’s Division 2 Crash Reconstruction Team, the Clarke County Sheriff’s Office, and Clarke County Fire and EMS Department.
