2 Injured, 8 Cars Damaged in Commuter Lot Crash

NORTH STAFFORD, Va. — Speed appears to be a factor in a crash that injured two people and damaged eight cars Tuesday morning in the Mine Road commuter lot.

The driver of a 2007 Mercedes-Benz sedan pulled into the commuter lot off Garrisonville Road (Va. 610) and clipped the bumper of a 2003 Honda that was already parked in a row of other vehicles.

The Mercedes went on to strike a 1996 Mazda pickup injuring a 20-year-old male that was sitting inside the truck, said Virginia State Police Sgt. Les Tyler.

The impact from the car hitting the truck pushed other cars into each other, subsequently damaging a Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford sedan and a 2003 Hyundai.

A 72-year-old female pedestrian standing next to the Hyundai at the time of impact was also injured, and both she and the 20-year-old were taken to a local hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life threatening, said Tyler.

The driver of the Mercedes, Michael Phillip Daniel, 50, of Stafford, is charged with reckless driving and driving without a license, said Tyler.
