Fatal Pedestrian Accident in Centreville

Sully Police District – Crash Reconstruction Unit detectives today are investigating a fatal pedestrian accident involving a Centreville man who was hit and killed by a car. The investigation has determined the man was hit shortly before 11 last night while attempting to cross Lee Highway at Stone Road. The driver of a 2001 Ford Mustang, which was traveling southbound on Lee Highway with the right-of-way, stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene. Preliminarily, it does not appear speed was a factor, but detectives believe alcohol may have been a factor for the pedestrian. His identity is being withheld until his family is notified.
