Police officers with the Fairfax Police Department are in the process of trying to identify and locate an individual who is believed to be behind hit-and-run crash that took place last weekend in the area of Falls Church known as Bailey’s Crossroads. According to the initial police report, the incident involved a car and two pedestrians who were attempting to cross Columbia Pike. One of the pedestrians was a 12-year-old girl, the other was the girl’s mother.
Several weeks ago, a resident of a home in the Fairfax County city of Herndon was alarmed early in the morning by a loud crashing sound coming from their backyard. According to the official report from the Herndon Police Department, when the homeowner cautiously got out of bed and went to investigate, they saw a strange scene of destruction and, at the center of it all, an empty Chevy Malibu.
Several weeks ago, we reported on an police chase in Herndon that took place shortly after Christmas and ended when the individual being pursued by police crashed into another car at an intersection and then attempted to flee from this crash on foot. According to the initial report, Vinson, a 28-year-old Adelphi, Maryland, resident had already assaulted a child as well as stolen two cars and a trailer. Police were chasing Vinson through Herndon when he ran a red light and collided with a minivan. Inside the minivan were six individuals, four of them children. One of the children was ejected from the vehicle during the crash.
An investigation into a crash that took place earlier this month has received a jolt of life after the perpetrator of the incident was caught this past week. The crash, which happened on January 6th, involved two cars at the intersection of North Washington Street and Columbia Street in Falls Church. The initial statement from the Fairfax Police Department recounted how the cars had approached the intersection at perpendicular angles. One of the cars had a red light, the other had a green light, but as the driver of the car facing the green light began to travel through the intersection the driver of the second car, facing the red light, ignored their traffic signal and attempted to pass through the intersection as well.
Few details have been reported regarding an accident that took place in Reston late Tuesday night, however police with the Fairfax County Police Department have issued a statement that goes over some of the more pertinent information on the incident. It seems that at some time before 8:00 in the evening, a person who has not been described in any way and remains unnamed was walking along the street when he approached the point where Reston Parkway and South Lakes Drive intersect.
On Friday morning, just before 6:30, a Virginia Department of Transportation employee was driving down Interstate 95, on his way to a car that had stalled in the northbound lanes of the busy highway, close to the 166B exit for the Fairfax County Parkway. When the highway safety worker arrived at the disabled car, he exited his own vehicle and began to create a safe perimeter around the two cars.
