WINCHESTER -- Two people were killed in a two-vehicle crash Friday night on U.S. 522 (North Frederick Pike), according to the state police.

Dominick C. Grippo, 73, of Yorktown Heights, N.Y., was driving a 2002 Toyota Camry that pulled off of Va. 681 (Chestnut Grove Road) onto U.S. 522 and into the path of a 2004 Ford F-350, Virginia State Police spokesman Sgt. F.L. "Les" Tyler said.

He said Grippo, and his passenger, Irma Irizarry, 67, of Danbury, Conn., both died at the scene. The pickup driver and his passenger were uninjured, Tyler said.

    This is sad; prayers go out for their souls.
    People do drive way too fast on all of the roads. People start flying starting at the lights at the intersection of Apple Pie Ridge Road. I don't understand why they feel the need to drive so fast. The speed limit is 45 mpg until you get a little ways past the farm market. I can be going a mile or two over the limit and I'll have people blasting past me so fast that they sway my truck and either run the red light at Indian Hollow Rd or have to screech to a halt half in order not to crash. I'm not saying speed was a factor in this crash, I'm just opining that drivers need to be more responsible about how they handle their vehicles. I know we all want to get home, but come on people; let's do it safely.
