FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. — A 77-year-old woman is dead after she was hit by a car in Fairfax County late Monday night.
The crash happened around 10 p.m. at Little River Turnpike and Backlick Road in Annandale, police said in a release Tuesday. A preliminary investigation by crash reconstruction detectives determined the woman, identified as Choon Yoo of Annandale, was crossing Little River Turnpike from north to south outside of the crosswalk. The driver of a 2011 Toyota Corolla was traveling east on Little River Turnpike and struck Yoo. The driver remained at the scene of the crash, police said. Yoon was taken to the hospital where she later died from her injuries.
Investigators do not believe speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
Roads in the area were closed while traffic reconstruction specialists conducted their investigation. All roads have since reopened.
