The driver of a 2007 Honda CRV struck Daniela Bonilla Betancourt when she was crossing Little River Turnpike in a crosswalk near Oasis Drive on May 22, police said. Officers responded to the crash around 10:23 p.m. and she was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
According to police, the driver was traveling westbound, while Betancourt was crossing from south to north.
“The driver struck Ms. Betancourt in the roadway and did not stop to assist or render aid,” Fairfax County police said in the press release. “As detectives were investigating the crash, Abraham Lincoln Samuel, 21, of Springfield, notified the Fairfax County Department of Public Safety Communications of his involvement in the crash.”
Police have charged Samuel with felony hit and run. The case will be presented to the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney for additional charges, police said. Preliminarily, alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
Betancourt’s death marks the eighth pedestrian fatality in the county this year. At this point last year, there had been seven pedestrian fatalities.
