Police are investigating after a 92-year-old man driving a vehicle struck two men in Old Town Alexandria, killing one.
At about 10 a.m. Tuesday, police said, the man was attempting to park in a bank parking lot at 100 South Fairfax St. when he struck a parking attendant, then abruptly accelerated forward, driving into Swift Alley and striking and killing a maintenance worker.
Police identified the man who was killed as Jeremais Herrera Rodriguez, 44, of Alexandria. The parking attendant had only minor injuries, Alexandria Deputy Police Chief David Huchler said, and was treated on the scene.
The driver, who remained on the scene, has not yet been identified by police. Huchler said police “do not believe that this was malicious.”
Alexandria Police asked that witnesses or people with information regarding this incident contact Investigator Diana Barrett at 703-746-6873.
