Two pedestrians struck by minivan in Bailey's Crossroads

Two pedestrians were seriously injured when struck by car in Bailey’s Crossroads June 15, the Fairfax County Police Department reports.

Two men from the Alexandria area were walking near a strip mall by the 3800 block of S. George Mason near the Skyline Center at about 2:50 p.m. when they were struck by a Honda Odyssey minivan.

One of the men, 44 was thrown to the ground; the other, 63, was pinned against the brick wall of a building. Both were transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital.

The older man had severe open wounds, open lacerations, and life-threatening injuries. Before emergency medical responders arrived, PFC Angela Thomas applied a tourniquet from her “go bag” kit to stop the heavy flow of blood. According to on-scene police supervisors, she likely assisted in saving the man’s life.

The investigation is continuing; charges have not yet been placed against the driver.


  1. Very sad, shocking to know the details of the accident. It happened minutes after I left the block. When I return to pickup something, the area was full of ambulances. I believe this is a reckless drive case. My prayer to the victim and his family

  2. Many many thanks to the female officer who was first responder, and handled the situation professionally
