Three more people were killed on Fairfax County roads this morning, police reported.

Eastbound Route 7 (Leesburg Pike) remains partly shut down in Tysons after two people died in a single-vehicle crash at Chain Bridge Road, the Fairfax County Police Department said shortly before 5:30 a.m.

Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash, according to police. Crash Reconstruction Unit detectives remain on the scene to investigate.

Further south, a pedestrian was struck and killed on Richmond Highway (Route 1) at Backlick Road in the Fort Belvoir area.

“Crash Reconstruction Unit detectives are enroute to investigate,” the FCPD said at 7:36 a.m. “Officers from our Motors Unit are arriving to assist diverting traffic.”

According to the Virginia Department of Transportation’s traffic cameras, the north left lane, left center lane, right center lane, and right lane of Route 1 are still closed, as of 8:25 a.m. Drivers should expect delays.
