Vienna Police Seek Information in Hit and Run

Driver who allegedly struck pedestrian on Desale Street did not stop to exchange information.

Vienna Police are looking for a driver who allegedly hit a pedestrian walking along Desale Street last week, but did not stop to check on the man's well-being or exchange information.

Police say around 6:05 p.m. Jan. 9, a man was walking north on Desale Street. While he was crossing the intersection with Ross Drive, a car also traveling northbound on the street began to turn left onto Ross Drive; the driver "slammed on his brakes but was unable to avoid the pedestrian," police wrote in a report.

After the pedestrian was struck, the driver fled. The pedestrian complained of minor pain in his right leg, police say.

The pedestrian told police the car was a silver sedan, driven by a white man with brown hair who appeared to be in his 50s.

Anyone with information on this case should contact the Vienna Police Department at (703) 255-6396.
