The Washington Post reports that a 33 year-old woman was tragically killed after being ejected from a vehicle last Friday in Prince William County after colliding with a tractor trailer. According to police, early reports fault the truck driver for running a red traffic signal. The deceased was later identified as Fresia D. Melo. Police said the truck driver and several others in the SUV were uninjured by the collision. It is believed that the deceased was not wearing a seatbelt.
