An 82-year-old pedestrian was seriously injured after being hit by a car Tuesday morning near the intersection of Richmond Highway and Quander Road.
The crash was reported by the Fairfax County Police a little after 8 a.m. The pedestrian, who was using a walker at the time of the crash, was taken to a local hospital, and crash reconstruction detectives were called to the scene to investigate.
A Toyota Echo sedan with significant damage to its windshield was seen stopped in the left lane just north of the intersection, and debris — including the man’s walker — was in the center and right lanes.
The circumstances of the crash remained under investigation as of 5 p.m. Tuesday. Additional information about the condition of the man struck was not immediately available.
The northbound lanes of Richmond Highway were closed until around 10:30 a.m., with traffic diverted onto North Kings Highway.
