Double Fatal Crash Investigated in North Stafford

NORTH STAFFORD, Va. — Two young lives were lost in an early morning crash today on Va. 610 in North Stafford.

A 2002 Ford Taurus was traveling east on Garrisonville Road (Va. 610) about 3:05 a.m. Saturday when the driver lost control of the car – which was carrying five occupants – and ran off the side of the road. The car struck a tree just east of Green Acre Drive near the Lake Arrowhead subdivision, spun around and then struck another tree instantly killing two passengers.

Virginia State Police said 15-year-old Stephanie Parnell, of Stafford, and 23-year-old Vincent Anthony Anguiano-Ayala, of Stafford died instantly.

The 18-year-old driver, Alex Christopher Hablas, of Stafford, was taken to Mary Washington Hosptial following the crash. So was 18-year-old Tony Dotson, of Stafford, who was sitting in the center of the back seat at the time of the crash.

Alicia Marie Robillard, 18, of Spotsylvania, was also taken to Mary Washington Hospital. Police said she was not wearing a seatbelt and was sitting in the lap of one of the car’s occupants.

Hablas the driver was treated and released from the hospital and now faces charges of involuntary manslaughter, reckless driving, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, said Virginia State Police Sgt. Les Tyler.

The conditions of the remaining patients were not released. Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.

Investigators closed a portion of Va. 610 for an investigation following the crash which lasted six hours. Stafford’s sheriff’s office, fire department, and the Virginia Department of Transportation assisted in the investigation.

    What were three 18-year olds and a 15-year old doing with a 23-year old? And what were their business being out at 3am?? What parent in their right mind would allow their 15-year old child out that late?? Just three of the MANY questions running through my mind…

    • donna

      maybe if I knew that my daughter was out then I would’ve went to find her. you have no idea what your talking about , I bet if it was one of your family members you wouldn’t be saying nothing !

        You should have known she was out or where she was its your responsib ility as a parent and that’s how we keep our kids safe and not knowing who she is surrounding herself with and then getting defensive when us other parents who have been involved in tragedy because of neglagent parents as yourself not being involved enough in their childrens lives but I am truly sorry for your loss but this could have been prevented. With a heavy heart I ask that all parents be PARENTS not FRIENDS !

          First of all you Nasty women! Teens do sneak out, don’t you remember. If you never did your one of the only. Have a little dam respect for the mother who just lost her child. Keep your thoughts and comments to yourself if you have to encouragement words. If you think the parents made a mistake, that’s fine and they are paying for that mistake everyday. I hope you don’t have kids cuz if you do boy are do you need a wake up call! BITCH!!

            It has been almost a year that my son has been gone. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about him and miss him. I’m glad I nerver read any of these comments tell now. To sit there and attack a mother who just lost her beloved child so wrong on any level. Often I still cry in the middle of the night missing my son. My heart brakes not only for my self but for any parent who have lost a child. All I can really say is you don’t know what it’s like till you are put in that situation, and may you never find out. Why is there no compassion?

      Dianna , I with you same stuck out in my mind. Would be hard enough losing child , but to be part of the blame not sure how even to start living with that failure that cost my child life.

  • Kristian Bell

    I knew stephanie. We went to school with each other a long time ago. Not sure if she remembered me before she dies, but I never forgot her. R.I.P

  • Crystal

    Im sickened by the person who has the right to comment that! I knew Vinny and I was very close to him. I am sorry to everyone those who suffer loss. Iv been there! But for you to comment something negative about this women who’s mourning The loss of her daughter you should be ashamed of yourself, Kids sneak out! I snuck out of my parents house till my butt moved out at 20 years old.
    If you can’t comment with respect then don’t comment at all!

  • Brian Prunty

    First thing , I’m sorry of loss of life. I have to wonder one thing. Why is a 15 year old out with a bunch at 3 in the morning? Where is the parents. If I was the father of this child I would be spend the rest of my life wondering if it was my fault she was there.
