Fatal Pedestrian Crash in Falls Church
Mason Police District – Detectives from our Crash Reconstruction Unit continue to investigate a fatal crash that occurred Monday morning at 11 a.m. on Leesburg Pike at Magnolia Drive in the Falls Church section of Fairfax County. Preliminarily, detectives determined Nguyet Ly, 68, of Falls Church, was walking east in the westbound travel lane of Leesburg Pike near the shoulder. There is no sidewalk on that portion of the roadway where Ly was walking. The driver of the 2018 Subaru Impreza was making a right turn out of a business in the 5900 block of Leesburg Pike and struck Ly in the roadway. Ly was taken to a hospital where she succumbed to her injuries later that evening. Preliminarily, speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash. The investigation remains active, and details of the investigation will be presented to the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney for review.
