An 83-year-old Annandale woman, Eileen Garnett, died yesterday morning (Wednesday) following a crash on Friday (May 20) where a driver crashed into four people in a parking lot, police said.

The crash in the 7200 block of Maple Place in Annandale involved four pedestrians who were discussing a community project, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

After the driver collided with the group, the driver’s 2008 Nissan Sentra continued into a nearby metal fence and came to a rest, authorities said.

The four pedestrians as well as the driver and passenger of the car were taken to the hospital. The other pedestrians — two adult women and an adult man — were treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Police have not identified the driver or announced whether they have been charged.

“The driver dropped food and spilled a drink inside her Nissan,” police said. “As she attempted to recover the dropped items, she lost control of the vehicle crossing the center median.”

Garnett is the seventh pedestrian to die in a vehicle crash in the county so far this year.
