A Maryland woman has been killed in Virginia after a 12-year-old boy threw himself off an overpass and landed on her vehicle on Saturday afternoon.

The crash occurred at 4.18pm near Exit 62 in Fairfax County as Harris was driving Eastbound, according to local authorities.
It's not yet clear what compelled the boy to make the 30-foot drop.
Police are not naming the jumper as he is a child, but he was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital and is being treated for life-threatening injuries, WTOP reported.
In the immediate aftermath of the incident, a man in Harris' front passenger seat was able to stop the car on the left shoulder.
He was uninjured, police said. It was initially reported that the jumper and Harris were both men.
It's unclear why Harris was in Virginia at the time.
