UPDATE: Police ID Suspect in Sunday Hit-and-Run

Fairfax County Police carFairfax County Police said they have identified a suspect in the Nov 16 hit-and-run accident in Reston that left a woman severely injured.

“A suspect, and suspect vehicle, have been identified relating to the hit and run investigation on Reston Parkway,” Public Information Officer Lucy Caldwell said yesterday. No one has been charged, she added.

Police had been looking for a red sedan that fled the scene.

The accident occurred about 6:30 p.m.on Reston Parkway near the Spectrum Center, where the victim had been shopping, family members said.

The victim, a woman, was struck when she was crossing Reston Parkway with her teenage daughter, police said.

Witnesses said the victims were not walking in a crosswalk. Groceries were spilled all over the road, which was briefly closed.

There is no crosswalk at that location, though the accident led to many comments by readers calling for one on the previous Reston Now story.

The woman was transported to a hospital, where she had surgery for organ damage, as well as a fractured right leg and broken and dislocated elbow. The child was not injured.

Meanwhile, Fairfax County Police are stepping up awareness of pedestrian safety. They say 400 pedestrians have been injured in the county in the last three years. Read more about FCPD’s campaign on the department’s blog.
