Suspect sought in hit and run crash


Fairfax County Crime Solvers is asking for the publics assistance in identifying the man responsible for crashing a car and fleeing the scene, leaving a woman injured. On Saturday, May 17 at 6:45 p.m., a 51-year-old Fairfax woman was stopped in traffic in the westbound lanes of Lee Highway near Stringfellow Road. She was struck from behind by another vehicle driven by a man. The man walked up to her car, spoke to her briefly then returned to his car and fled. 

The woman was transported to Inova Fair Oaks Hospital, treated for her injuries then released. When her injuries did not improve, the victims family brought her back to the hospital on Monday, May 19. Doctors determined she had developed a serious medical condition and required surgery.
The driver of the fleeing vehicle was described as black. He may have been driving a dark gray car with the numbers 41 or 46 on the license plates. Police are hoping someone driving by may have witnessed the crash or know the driver involved.
