Officers from our Motor Carrier Safety Unit conducted a commercial vehicle safety inspection in the parking lot of the Greenbriar Shopping Center in Chantilly on Tuesday, September 1, from 7-11 a.m. As a result of their efforts, 20 trucks were inspected. 44 violations were noted, 10 traffic summonses were written and seven trucks were taken out of service; meaning taken off of the roadway for being unsafe. This inspection is part of an ongoing effort by the police department to ensure that the roadways in Fairfax County are as safe as possible; especially at this critical time, as the start of the new school year approaches. Please drive safely, remember to stop for school busses with their red lights flashing and the stop sign out. Watch for children crossing the road. Be mindful of the flashing lights, indicating a 25 mph speed limit through school zones.

Fatal Crash in Herndon

Detectives from the Crash Reconstruction Unit are investigating a crash involving a bicycle and an SUV that occurred on Sunrise Valley Drive near Coppermine Road, on Monday, August 31, shortly after 8 p.m. The preliminary investigation suggests that two bicycles were traveling north on Sunrise Valley Drive in the right lane. Neither rider was wearing reflective clothing, nor did they have any lights on their bicycles. A 2014 Chevrolet Suburban (SUV), driven by a 29-year-old Fairfax man, also traveling north on Sunrise Valley Drive, approached the bicycles from behind and struck one of the riders; a 38-year-old, whose address is unknown at this time. The driver of the SUV remained on the scene. The bicyclist who was struck was transported to Reston Hospital Center and was pronounced dead later that evening. Speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in this crash. It is still under investigation and next of kin has not yet been located.
