Haymarket Man Dies in Car Crash Due to Medical Emergency

The driver suffered a medical emergency that led to a car crash


Prince William Police crash investigators responded to the intersection of Lee Highway and Webb Drive in Gainesville to investigate a crash, Nov. 14 at 6:58 p.m.

The investigation revealed the driver of a Kia Optima was traveling westbound on Lee Highway just before Webb Drive and suffered a medical emergency. The driver disregarded the red light at the intersection and struck a 2023 Toyota 4-Runner that was traveling on Webb Drive.

The driver of the Optima was transported to an area hospital where he later died on November 27. At the time of the crash, the driver of the 4-Runner, a 60-year-old woman, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Following the investigation, and due to indications the death resulted from a medical emergency and not from injuries from the collision, the case will be classified as a death, and not a fatal crash. 

The deceased was identified as Michael Earl Baylock, 68, of Haymarket.
