A man speeding away from a domestic incident was killed and a Fairfax County police officer injured when the man’s car struck the officer’s cruiser head-on just after midnight Wednesday.
The man, identified as 40-year-old Cicero I. Limberea encountered police late Wednesday when officers were called to a home in the 4800 block of Tapestry Drive for a “domestic call,” police said. Mr. Limberea spoke with a Fairfax police officer briefly, then left the area, driving the wrong way down Little River Turnpike. Police said his car barely missed striking several oncoming vehicles before it collided with a police cruiser, which was responding to reports of Mr. Limberea’s erratic driving.
The police officer, who was described only as a 28-year-old man, had to be cut out of his vehicle and taken to a hospital. He was listed in stable condition on Thursday.
Mr. Limberea died at the scene.
