Man killed in head-on motorcycle crash west of Burke Lake

Henderson Road at Devereux Station Lane (via Google Maps)

A man from Lorton was killed in a motorcycle crash in Fairfax Station on Saturday evening (August 13).

Abdul Lee, 43, was headed east on Henderson Road when his motorcycle crossed a double yellow center line near Devereux Station Lane and collided head on with a 2010 Grand Cherokee, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

The driver of the Grand Cherokee was not injured and remained on the scene. 

Preliminarily, detectives do not believe that alcohol was a factor in the crash. An investigation is underway to determine if speed was a factor. 

This is the 10th non-pedestrian fatality in the county so far this year, according to police, surpassing the six such fatalities reported by this point in 2021. Including Lee, at least four motorcyclists have died in crashes so far in 2022.

Here’s more from FCPD on how to provide information about the crash, which happened at around 5:50 p.m.:
