A Falls Church woman died Wednesday after allowing an unlicensed 17-year-old to drive her car, Fairfax County Police said.

Natalie Miranda, 20, of Nealon Drive died around 7 p.m. on Wednesday from injuries suffered in a car crash the day before.

On Tuesday, Miranda was driving her Honda Accord on Cherokee Avenue when a male passenger asked if he could drive, according to police. Miranda allowed the boy to drive, but he lost control of the car near Patuxent Way, crashed into a stopped Toyota Highlander, and drove down an embankment.

The driver of the Highlander and the 17-year-old driver were unharmed. Miranda and an additional 18-year-old male passenger in the Accord were taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital where 18-year-old’s injuries were determined non-life threatening.

Fairfax Police say the investigation is ongoing.
