(Updated at 10 a.m.) A Springfield resident who was allegedly driving while drunk hit and killed a man whose vehicle became disabled on I-95 yesterday (Tuesday).
Identified as Jose Davi Hernandez-Zelayandia, 35, of Woodbridge, the victim had stopped to assess his 2011 Honda Accord on the shoulder of the interstate’s southbound lanes at the exit to Old Keene Mill Road in Springfield, Virginia State Police said in a news release.
At 3:06 p.m., he started to get back into the car when “a 2022 Nissan Sentra ran off the road and struck him,” according to police.
“The Nissan then attempted to leave the scene, but was stopped by witnesses,” the VSP said.
Hernandez-Zelayandia was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where he died from his injuries.
The Nissan driver, 61-year-old John O. Hess, was not injured, according to state police, which has a crash reconstruction team assisting with the investigation. He has been arrested and charged with a DUI and felony hit-and-run.
Hernandez-Zelayandia is the fourth pedestrian killed in Fairfax County this month, following fatal crashes in Fair Oaks on Sunday (Oct. 9), on Richmond Highway in Fort Belvoir last Thursday (Oct. 6), and in Annandale on Oct. 2.
