Driver charged in fatal crash
A Fredericksburg man has been charged in last week’s bizarre fatal crash in which his vehicle went airborne and landed on another car.
The crash happened on Interstate 95 in Prince William County and left another Fredericksburg man dead.
Greg Steven Hall faces charges of reckless driving and driving on a revoked license, something which the 24-year-old has been convicted of three times, according to the Virginia State Police.
Court records show Hall has been convicted of numerous offenses, mostly driving infractions, between 2008 and 2013.
One of his offenses for driving on a suspended license happened in Spotsylvania County. The others occurred in Woodbridge.
Hall also has been convicted of possessing and distributing marijuana, according to Prince William County court records.
Hall and his mother, 53-year-old Lesa Hall, suffered serious injuries in last week’s crash and were flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital. They are no longer patients at the hospital.
Matthew Wilkerson, a 37-year-old Fredericksburg resident, died at the crash scene.
The wreck happened at about 11:15 a.m. Friday on southbound Interstate 95 in Dumfries, near exit 152, state police reported.
A Nissan Versa, driven by Hall, was headed south when it ran off the left side of the interstate and hit a jersey wall barrier. The car then went airborne and landed upside down on top of Wilkerson’s southbound Honda Civic, police said.
State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said the crash remains under investigation.
