Police say Diego Vazquez Mendoza, 32, of Culpeper, is now behind bars on felony charges from a December 2012 crash that killed one person and seriously injured another.
As we've reported, the incident happened at 6:16 p.m. December 23, 2012 on Route 17 less than a mile south of Route 28.

The driver of the Honda was not injured in the crash.
