LORTON, Va. (AP) - A Woodbridge man has pleaded guilty in a crash that killed a deputy director of a defense intelligence agency in February.
Twenty-eight-year-old Carlos Portillo pleaded guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter. A prosecutor in a Fairfax County court says Portillo was driving 99 mph when his Chevrolet hit a BMW being driven by 57-year-old Sharon Parrish of Manassas.
The crash happened on Feb. 9 in the Lorton area.
The Washington Post reports that Parrish had worked for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
Authorities have ruled out alcohol and cellphone use as causes of the crash.
A prosecutor did not say Monday why Portillo was speeding and did not comment on the case.
