Detectives Investigate Fatal Crash in Chantilly
Sully Police District – A 65-year-old man died early Thursday after being struck by his 2013 Toyota 4Runner in front of his home in Chantilly. Officers responded at 12:09 a.m. to the 13500 block of Tabscott Drive and found Edgar Gutierrez pinned between his SUV and a light pole. Rescue personnel freed Gutierrez from the vehicle and pronounced him deceased at the scene. Crash Reconstruction Unit detectives determined Gutierrez was working on his SUV and left it in gear when he exited the driver’s seat. The SUV began to roll, and Gutierrez tried to stop the vehicle. The vehicle rolled out of his driveway and across the street pinning Gutierrez between the door of his vehicle and a light pole.
Detectives continue to investigate the circumstances that led to the crash, but do not suspect foul play. Preliminarily, alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
