Jacob Viduszynski, 18, of Stafford, was killed in a Tuesday evening crash involving an 18-wheeler at the intersection of Richards Ferry Road and U.S. 17, authorities say.

Witnesses told Stafford County sheriff's deputies that a  Hyundai traveling on Richards Ferry Road at 6:07 p.m. failed to yield to a tractor-trailer traveling south on Warrenton Road. The tractor trailer struck the driver’s side of the vehicle, the sheriff's office said in a news release.

Viduszynski, the Hyundai's driver, died at the scene. An 18-year-old passenger was airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital with life-threatening injuries. He remained in critical condition Wednesday afternoon.

Warrenton Road was shut down in both directions for an extended period of time, with traffic rerouted onto Hartwood Road and Richland Road.

The sheriff’s office said they are aware of damages to Richland Road and have been in contact with the Virginia Department of Transportation, which is working on repairing the damaged signs and assessing any possible damage to the road.
