Fatal Pedestrian Crash in Beacon Hill
Mount Vernon Police District – Detectives from our Crash Reconstruction Unit continue to investigate a fatal crash that occurred yesterday at 1:13 p.m. at the intersection of South Kings Highway and Southgate Drive. Preliminarily, detectives determined Reynaldo Quinteros Alfaro, 54, of Alexandria, was crossing South Kings Highway from the east to west side of the roadway. At this intersection, there is no traffic signal or stop signs for vehicles traveling on South Kings Highway and there is no crosswalk.
The driver of a 2017 Dodge Journey was traveling southbound on South Kings Highway, a posted 35 mile per hour roadway, and struck him. Virginia law, §46.2-924, requires drivers to stop for pedestrians at any intersection when the driver is approaching on a highway where the speed limit is not more than 35 miles per hour. The driver remained at the scene of the crash. Quinteros Alfaro was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Preliminarily, speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors for the driver. The investigation remains active and details of the investigation will be presented to the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney for review.
