UPDATE: May 7 at 4 p.m.

Investigators with the Crash Investigation Unit have determined that the victim struck and killed in the area of Sudley Road and Balls Ford Road in Manassas on May 6 was struck by two vehicles.

“Upon reviewing surveillance footage, the pedestrian was initially struck by a newer model silver Toyota Corolla before the vehicle continued straight on Sudley Road,” said police spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Perok. “The vehicle did not turn onto Balls Ford Rd as initially believed and reported.”

According to the investigation, the Toyota Corolla will have damage to the lower passenger side bumper and will be missing the passenger side mirror.

“Moments after the victim was initially hit, a second vehicle struck the victim as he laid in the roadway,” said Perok. “The second vehicle then pulled into a nearby service station where the driver was seen pumping gas before driving away from the scene a short time later. The driver was only described as a light-skinned, unknown race, male.”

The second vehicle was described as a mid-2000 model dark-colored Nissan Xterra. The vehicle may not have noticeable damage from the collision.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact the Prince William County Police Department tipline at 703.792.7000 or submit a webtip to: www.pwcgov.org/policetip.
