Detectives from the FCPD Crash Reconstruction Unit continue to investigate a fatal crash involving an electric skateboard that occurred Oct. 11 at approximately 10:29 p.m. in the 2600 block of Hunter Mill Road in Oakton. Preliminarily, detectives determined David Yazdani, 32, of Oakton, was riding an electric skateboard northbound on Hunter Mill Road near Conejo Lane. Detectives believe Yazdani lost control and fell into the southbound lanes of the road. The driver of a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe was traveling southbound on Hunter Mill Road and struck Yazdani, who was lying in the road. The driver of a 2007 Toyota Rav4 was also traveling southbound on Hunter Mill Road and struck Yazdani after the Hyundai. Yazdani was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.
