A pedestrian trying to cross Leesburg Pike in the Culmore area was struck by a vehicle and killed at about 3:40 p.m. on May 18. Click here for a video of the crash scene from the Culmore Neighbors Association’s Facebook page.
He was struck by a 51-year-old driver in a 2012 Jeep Wrangler who had been traveling southbound on Glen Carlyn and made a left turn onto Route 7.
Wright said the driver attempted to avoid hitting the pedestrian but was unable to do so. She said neither alcohol nor speeding were factors according to a preliminary investigation by crash reconstruction detectives. The driver remained at the scene, and his name is being withheld because he was not charged with a crime, although that could change later pending investigators’ final determination.
