Police seek vehicle in hit-and-run accident on Columbia Pike

Fairfax County Police are seeking a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run accident on Columbia Pike, near the Lake Barcroft dam, at around 2:50 a.m. on May 9.

The victim, a 29-year-old man, was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital with life-threatening injuries. According to police, he was walking east in the left westbound travel lane at the 6200 block of Columbia Pike.

A passerby, traveling in the opposite direction, saw the man walking unsteadily in the road and turned around to go back and check on him. When they returned to the location, they found the man injured, lying on the road, and called the police.

There is no information available on the vehicle, but police believe it might have damage to its driver-side mirror and possibly the driver-side front headlight area.

Anyone with information on the vehicle or the accident is urged to call police at 703-691-2131 or  contact Crime Solvers by calling 866-411-TIPS/8477, texting “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES/274637, or sending a confidential email using the link on the Crime Solvers website.

  1. My heart goes out to this person. Sounds like he was drunk. That really is not an area that is meant for walking. I'm not sure what I would do if my car broke down there, or anything. I would just leave it, and get as far away from the road as possible.
