An 87-year-old man on his way to his son's funeral was one of the three people killed in Northern Virginia in a car crash.

Peter Stesney of Allentown, Pennsylvania, was driving a pickup truck that rear-ended a tractor-trailer about 7pm Thursday (local time) on a ramp near Springfield, Virginia, police said.

Also killed were his passengers, Bernice Supinski, 85, and Laura Kordelski, 51.

According to accounts from Pennsylvania news media and people who knew them, Supinski was Stesney's sister, and Kordelski was his daughter.

"It's a shame," said Katherine Border, a friend of Supinski's.

"A real shame. She was a nice lady. Her whole family was nice."

The Allentown Morning Call's website said the three were going to Florida, where according to a family caregiver, Stesney's son had died that morning.

"That's terrible," Border said of the crash.

"To live a long life like that and then die so tragically."
