Fairfax County Police say that James Edward Dibble, 65, will appear in court on Feb. 2.

Police say Dibble, an Alexandria resident, was driving a dump truck southbound on Lee Highway near Sudley Road just after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday when he crossed into the northbound lane, striking the rear side of a Ford F-350.

The dump truck lost control and struck a Honda CRV, driven by 40-year-old Daniel S. Tulk of South Riding, head on.

Tulk was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Ford truck, a 40-year-old Aldie woman, sustained minor injuries. Each of the victims was wearing their seat belt at the time of the crash.
