PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, MD – On January 17 at 11:18PM, investigators with the Crash Investigation Unit responded to the area of James Madison Hwy and Dominion Valley Dr in Haymarket to investigate a crash involving a pedestrian. The investigation revealed that the driver of a 2007 Toyota Camry was traveling southbound on James Madison Hwy approaching Dominion Valley Dr when the vehicle struck a pedestrian who was present in the lane of travel, outside of a crosswalk.
A short time later, second driver operating a 1995 Chevrolet Silverado traveling in the same travel lane on James Madison Hwy appears to have also struck the pedestrian who was still in the roadway. Both drivers stopped nearby and contacted police after determining they had struck a person. The pedestrian was preliminarily identified as a juvenile and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Due to a 2017 law change, the identity of the deceased is not being released. Additional information about the incident will be released when it becomes available. The investigation continues.
