The wet road may have contributed to a fatal crash on a stretch of the Beltway “notorious” for single-car crashes, according to Montgomery County police.
Dung Phan, 43, of Sterling, Va., struck a guardrail in his Toyota Corolla on a curved portion of the Outer Loop near Route 355 late Wednesday. He then crashed into a concrete barrier wall.
Phan died from the injuries he suffered in the crash.
Speed may have been a factor in the crash, police said, but alcohol was not.
