Pedestrians Struck in Pentagon City, Falls Church

An Air Force officer was hit by a car around 5:35 p.m. today in Pentagon City.

It happened underneath the I-395 overpass on 12th Street South, near South Clark Street. The victim, a man approximately 30 years old, was conscious but suffering from a head injury when first responders arrived on scene.

A witness saw the man fly across the street after being hit by an older model Honda or Toyota. Other military personnel rushed to his aid after the accident.

The driver, a woman, stayed on the scene. Her car’s windshield was smashed, the witness said.

Earlier today, in a separate incident first reported on our Twitter feed, an 88-year-old man was struck by an SUV as he tried to cross West Broad Street near North Washington Street in Falls Church. He’s now in intensive care at Inova Fairfax Hospital.

The man was not in a crosswalk and no charges have been filed, according to the Falls Church News-Press.
