Centreville Man Killed in Bicycle Crash

A Centreville man died last week, following a collision between the bicycle he was riding and a car. Fairfax County police identified him as Raymond Buza, 64.

The tragedy occurred Friday morning, Feb. 21. just after 10 a.m. It happened at the intersection of Hidden Canyon Road and Blueridge View Drive in Centreville’s Virginia Run community. Police detectives from the Crash Reconstruction Unit preliminarily determined that Buza was on his bicycle traveling east on Hidden Canyon Road.

According to police, “The driver of a 2017 Hyundai Sonata turned left onto Blueridge View Drive in front of Buza, which resulted in the crash. Buza was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced deceased. The driver of the Sonata remained at the scene.”

Initially, say police, alcohol does not appear to be a factor of the crash for the driver. The investigation remains active, and details of the investigation’s findings will be presented to the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office for review.
