The victim was identified as Ha Yong Jung, 55, of Ellicott City, Md. He was in front of 7118 Columbia Pike, between Tom Davis Drive and John Marr Drive, when a 2015 Ford pickup truck, driven by a 51-year-old woman, exited a parking lot at 7117 and headed west on Columbia Pike.
Jung was in the middle of the westbound lanes, not in a crosswalk, when he was struck by the truck. The driver remained on the scene. Jung was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Speed and alcohol are not considered factors in this crash, according to an initial investigation by detectives from the Crash Reconstruction Unit. No charges are anticipated. The investigation continues.
The crash happened three days after FCPD announced plans for a pedestrian safety initiative and reported five of the 11 most dangerous spots for pedestrians are in the Annandale/Mason District area.
