Prince William police lights generic

A 20-year-old Maryland man died following a Friday afternoon crash on U.S. 29 at Interstate 66 in Gainesville.

Police say a 2016 Toyota Corolla was disabled in a travel lane on the ramp from eastbound I-66 to southbound Lee Highway when a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado exiting from the interstate struck the rear of the Corolla.

The passenger in Corolla, 20-year-old Phillip Dennis Sorrell of Germantown, was flown to an area hospital, where he died Saturday, said Prince William County police spokesman Adam Beard.

The Corolla's driver, a 61-year-old Germantown man, was also hospitalized with serious injuries.

The driver of the Silverado, a 39-year-old Rapidan man, was not injured.

The investigation continues.
