A 24-year-old man was struck and killed while walking on I-66 over the weekend.
The fatal crash happened early Saturday morning, around 12:30 a.m., near the Lee Highway exit (Exit 73) in Arlington.
Virginia State Police say Justin Angel of Stephen City, Virginia, “was walking in the eastbound lane of I-66 when he was struck by a 2017 Dodge Journey.” Angel died at the scene.
“The driver of the Dodge was not injured in the crash,” VSP said. “The crash remains under investigation.”
It’s unclear why the victim was walking in the highway.
