Fairfax County police say a female pedestrian is in critical condition after being struck by a car along Lee Hwy in Merrifield.
Police received the call at 10:14 a.m. on Saturday (Nov. 23) for the crash involving a Toyota Solara and a female pedestrian, Sgt. James Curry, a police spokesperson, told Tysons Reporter.
Police tweeted about the crash shortly after 11 a.m, noting that eastbound Lee Hwy was closed at Cedar Lane.
“The pedestrian was taken to the hospital with injuries considered to be life-threatening,” the tweet said.
Shortly after 1 p.m., police tweeted again to say that Lee Hwy had reopened and that “the pedestrian remains in critical condition.”
Curry said that, as of 9:30 a.m. today (Monday), the police are awaiting an update on the woman’s condition.
The driver involved in the crash remained on the scene, Curry said, adding that no arrests have been made in connection to the crash.
The location of the pedestrian when the crash occurred and the cause of the crash are pending investigation, Curry said.
