2 Culpeper residents die in horrific Remington crash

The accident closed a section of northbound Route 29 for about four hours Monday morning.
Two Culpeper residents died at the scene of Monday morning’s horrific traffic accident just west of Remington.

State police released the details Tuesday morning.

Two northbound vehicles on Route 29 — a 2000 Oldsmobile Bravado and a 2011 Toyota Corolla — stopped at Freemans Ford Road traffic signal, according to Sgt. Les Tyler.

“As a 2003 Ford F-250 pickup truck approached the intersection, headed north on Route 29, it failed to stop in time,” Sgt. Tyler wrote in a press release. “The F-250 first struck the stopped Oldsmobile. The impact of that crash spun the Oldsmobile into the median where the Oldsmobile caught fire. Meanwhile, the F-250 then struck the Toyota.”

The Oldsmobile driver and passenger, Juan Lopez Jimenez, 37, and Hortencia Lainez Lopez, 38, both died at the scene.

The pickup truck driver, a 34-year-old Gordonsville man, suffered minor injuries and received treatment at the scene, according to Sgt. Tyler.

An ambulance took the Toyota driver, a 59-year-old Culpeper man, to Fauquier Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

“A 46-year-old male passerby ran up to the burning Oldsmobile and tried to rescue the occupants,” Sgt. Tyler said. “The Culpeper resident suffered serious burns as a result of his valiant attempts and was flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital for treatment.”

The cause of the crash, which took place at 7:29 a.m., remains under investigation, with charges pending, Sgt. Tyler said.

The Virginia State Police Culpeper Division Crash Reconstruction Team responded to assist with the investigation.
