Investigators with the Crash Investigation Unit of the Prince William Police Department responded to the area of James Madison Highway and Dominion Valley Drive in Haymarket to investigate a crash involving a pedestrian, Jan. 17 at 11:19 p.m.

The investigation revealed that the driver of a 2007 Toyota Camry was traveling southbound on James Madison Highway approaching Dominion Valley Drive when the vehicle struck a pedestrian who was present in the lane of travel, outside of a crosswalk.

A short time later, second driver operating a 1995 Chevrolet Silverado traveling in the same travel lane on James Madison Highway appears to have also struck the pedestrian who was still in the roadway.

Both drivers stopped nearby and contacted police after determining they had struck a person. The pedestrian was preliminarily identified as a juvenile and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The body was transported to the Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.

Due to a 2017 law change, the identity of the deceased is not being released. Additional information about the incident will be released when it becomes available. The investigation continues.
