A pedestrian was killed after being run over by a fire engine near the Reston Glade Apartments early this morning (Monday).

A medical unit with the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department was dispatched to Glade Drive at Dosnia Court near Dogwood Elementary School for a medical emergency around 2:19 a.m., according to scanner traffic on Open MHz.

Around the same time, Fairfax County police officers were dispatched to Dogwood Elementary School for a “suspicious person” after a caller reported an apparently unconscious woman on the ground.

At 2:24 a.m., a responder told the dispatcher that the “patient’s in the road, run over by engine 31. Appears to be DOA.”

A police officer said at 2:30 a.m. that the road would need to be shut down.

“The fire truck actually struck this individual,” the officer said.

Detectives with the FCPD’s Crash Reconstruction Unit were sent to the scene of what it described as a “fatal pedestrian crash involving @ffxfirerescue,” the department tweeted shortly after 4 a.m.

Glade Drive was closed for over an hour between Laurel Glade Drive and Rosedown Drive.
