Pedestrian Struck Near Kenmore Expected to Survive

Pedestrian accident on Carlin Springs Road near Kenmore Middle SchoolA man who was struck by a car and critically injured Wednesday night is expected to survive.

The man was apparently trying to cross Carlin Springs Road near Kenmore Middle School when he was struck by a southbound vehicle, suffering what police described as “severe head trauma.” The man is expected to survive, although severe head injuries are often debilitating.

“The victim remains in a medically induced coma at this time but is expected to survive,” Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck told ARLnow.com. “His wife informed our lead detective on the case that he is in stable condition.”

The man is an Arlington Public Schools teacher. The school system declined to identify the school at which he teaches.

“Students have been told that the teacher was in an accident and to keep him in their thoughts,” said APS spokesman Frank Bellavia. “Unfortunately I can’t release his name because of privacy issues.”

Police remained on scene for hours to investigate the accident. So far there’s no word on whether any charges will be filed.
