Police Arrest Driver in Yates Ford Road Collison that Killed 32-Year-Old Woman

Police believe the accused was driving under the influence of alcohol


On May 3, Prince William crash investigators obtained arrest warrants for the driver determined to be at fault in a fatal collision that occurred at Yates Ford Road near Evans Ford Road in Manassas, April 15.

Jessica Lynn Randall, 32, of Manassas, who was a passenger inside the same vehicle as the accused, died of injuries she sustained from the crash. Police said alcohol appeared to be a factor in the accident.

“The investigation revealed the driver of the 1993 Buick Roadmaster, identified as the accused, was under the influence and failed to yield the right-of-way to a Dodge Ram pickup, as the vehicles entered the intersection and collided,” said Prince William PIO Renee Carr.

Police charged the accused, Jason Carter Lambeth, 46, of 6207 Sierra Ct. in Manassas, with aggravated involuntary manslaughter that was DUI.-related and failure to yield the right-of-way.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 56-year-old Manassas man, sustained non-life-threatening injuries and had to be transported to an area hospital. A pug in the Roadmaster was declared deceased at the scene.

Following the investigation, police arrested Lambeth. His court date is pending, and he is being held without bond.
