A motorcyclist has died after crashing on Braddock Road near the Fairfax area almost a month ago, the Fairfax County Police Department announced yesterday (Wednesday).

Sterling resident Brian Perry was riding a 2007 Kawasaki motorcycle, traveling east on Braddock on June 29. Around 6:17 p.m., he reached a section of road near the Fairfax County Parkway intersection that transitioned from pavement to milled asphalt, lost control of the bike and crashed, police say.

“Perry was taken to a hospital and on July 12 succumbed to his injuries,” the FCPD said. He was 63 years old.

The crash remains under investigation by the department’s Crash Reconstruction Unit detectives, but speed and alcohol are not believed to have been factors in the crash.

Perry is the seventh non-pedestrian to die from a vehicle crash in Fairfax County this year, according to the FCPD. The county had recorded five such fatalities by this point in 2021.

This year’s sixth non-pedestrian fatality was also a motorcyclist. The crash occurred on July 3 when Nema Mirsaeedi, 31, of Springfield was thrown from his bike upon colliding with a car on Burke Center Parkway.

On May 22, a motorcyclist was hospitalized by a crash with a vehicle at the intersection of Braddock Road and Second Road in the Fairfax area.

The FCPD says anyone with information about the June 29 crash can contact the Crash Reconstruction Unit at 703-280-0543. Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Solvers by phone (1-866-411-TIPS) and online.

“Anonymous tipsters are eligible for cash rewards of $100 to $1,000 dollars,” the FCPD said. “Please leave contact information if you wish for a detective to follow up with you.”
