Teen pedestrian seriously injured in hit-and-run in Alexandria

A 16-year-old boy was seriously injured in a hit-and-run crash in Alexandria on Friday night, police said.

Fairfax County police said a red minivan struck the teen as he was walking in a crosswalk at the intersection of Telegraph Road and Broadmoor Street shortly before 7 p.m. Police said witnesses reported that the minivan was traveling south on Telegraph and was making a left turn onto Broadmoor when it struck the teen.

The minivan never stopped, witnesses told police, and it continued onto Broadmoor Street in front of Hayfield Elementary School before leaving the area.

The victim was taken to a local hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. Police believe the vehicle might have sustained front-end damage, police said.

Police are asking the public for help in finding the minivan’s driver. Anyone who may have witnessed the crash or has information about the striking vehicle or the driver can call 1-866-411-TIPS/8477 or 703-691-2131, submit a tip online at, or text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES/274637.
