Crash Reconstruction Unit detectives are looking for anyone who may have witnessed a fatal crash involving a pedestrian in the intersection of Beulah Street and Kingstowne Commons Drive in the Alexandria area of Fairfax County (Franconia, 22315).
Herbert James Jr., 72 of Alexandria, was attempting to cross Beulah Street around 5:50 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25, in the crosswalk. The driver of a 2013 Toyota Corolla was traveling northbound on Beulah Street when he hit James in the intersection. Investigators are working to determine if James used the pedestrian signal at the time of the crash. According to FCPD Media Relations Bureau, alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors for anyone involved. The driver remained at the scene. James was taken to the hospital and later pronounced dead.
Once the investigation is complete, the Office of the Commonwealth Attorney will review the case and determine if the driver will be charged.
