An 89-year-old man died from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle crash Saturday morning on Ox Road in West Springfield.
Lloyd South, 89, of Fairfax Station was traveling east from Ox Road in a 2014 Nissan Frontier around 9:40 a.m. South disregarded a stop sign causing his vehicle to collide with a 2018 Volvo XC90. The impact caused the Volvo to spin then collide with a highway sign in the median and into the guardrail.
The driver and passengers of the Volvo remained on the scene and were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the hospital.
South was taken to the hospital and died one day after the crash. Preliminarily, speed and alcohol are not believed to be factors in the crash.
This is the 12th non-pedestrian-related fatal crash in the County to date in 2023
