A crash between a car and a motorcycle last week took the life of a 27-year-old Lorton man. It happened on Route 28 north in Centreville, and the person killed was Zafeer Piracha.
Fairfax County police officers from the nearby Sully District Station responded to the crash last Thursday, Nov. 16. at 9:01 p.m. Preliminarily, detectives determined that the driver of a 2016 Acura TLX was traveling northbound on Route 28, prior to Westfields Boulevard, as was Piracha on a 2022 Kawasaki.
According to police, the Acura “struck Piracha, causing him to separate from the motorcycle.” Piracha was pronounced dead at the scene, and the other driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening. While officers try to sort out the details leading up to this fatal collision, they’re continuing to investigate whether speed and/or alcohol were factors in the incident.
