Woman Apparently Intentionally Struck and Killed by Car in Fair Oaks; Police Searching for Suspect

The Fairfax County Police Department is seeking suspects after they say a woman was intentionally run down by a vehicle.

The incident happened at about 10:16 a.m. in the area of Route 50 and Rugby Road. An adult female was struck twice by the car, police say.

“The woman was crossing Rugby Road,” said Tawny Wright, Fairfax County Police Department public information officer, in a Facebook Live video. “It looks like the car struck her, turned around and then struck her again.”

Police are looking for a black or blue Chevrolet or Mercedes-Benz sedan. The car was last seen traveling northbound on Rugby Road.

The driver is described as being a “younger” white male with sandy blonde hair. The car has blue and yellow license plates, police say, and it may have front-end damage.

Route 50 was closed in both directions in the immediate aftermath of the incident. Eastbound lanes have since been reopened, but may later be closed again during the investigation. Westbound lanes remain closed at Fairfax County Parkway.

“Traffic will be impacted significantly, probably for several hours,” Wright said in the original media briefing.
