Fairfax County Police are investigating a fatal crash that took
place on Franconia Road near the on-ramp for I395/I95 just before 2
p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 9. Preliminary investigation reveals that an
adult woman was crossing Franconia Road, not in a crosswalk, when
a 2002 Ford pickup truck struck and killed the pedestrian.
Detectives are still working on confirming the identity of the woman
and notifying next of kin. Speed and alcohol do not appear to be
factors on the part of the driver.
The crash is under investigation by Crash Reconstruction Unit
detectives. If anyone has additional information, please call
