A woman was hospitalized after her car was hit by components of a tractor-trailer on I-66 in the Fair Lakes area.

The woman was driving onto I-66 East from Stringfellow Road around 1:34 p.m. on Friday (July 1) when her black 2015 Nissan Murano “was struck by a wheel hub and tire assembly lost from a tractor-trailer traveling west on I-66,” the Virginia State Police said on Saturday (July 2).

“The tractor-trailer continued west on I-66 and, despite a search of the area, was not located,” police said.

The woman suffered injuries considered life-threatening and was transported to Inova’s emergency room in Reston, where she’s still being treated, VSP spokesperson Corinne Geller told FFXnow yesterday (Tuesday).

Police are currently on the lookout for the tractor-trailer involved in the crash. While the available information on the vehicle is limited to the fact that it’s missing a wheel hub and tire assembly, the VSP says anyone who has information or may have witnessed the crash can call #77 or 703-803-0026, or email questions@vsp.virginia.gov.
