Alexandria Man Dies in Van Dorn Street Crash

A 64-year-old Alexandria man has died and four others were seriously injured in a crash on the West End this weekend.

The crash happened around 8:15 p.m. Saturday on the 2000 block of North Van Dorn Street, near the Aldi supermarket.

Two SUVs collided head-on, killing Armando Aguirre Membreno, 64. Three adults and one juvenile were injured and brought to a local hospital, where they were listed in stable condition as of Sunday, according to Alexandria police.

A photo from the scene, posted by Fox 5, shows both vehicles with heavy front-end damage. At least two people were reported to be trapped after the crash, requiring extrication by firefighters using heavy rescue equipment.

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.

“Members of the Crash Reconstruction Team and Criminal Investigations Section are investigating the crash,” APD said in a press release. “The investigation is ongoing. Alexandria Police ask that witnesses with information regarding this incident contact Officer Nancy Gordon at 571.289.6794.”
