It happened in the area of Old Dominion Drive and Dolley Madison Boulevard on October 28 around 3 p.m.

Police say that an 81-year-old Falls Church woman was travelling north on Dolley Madison, with Grosse in the passenger seat, when she lost control of the car while trying to turn right onto Old Dominion.
