A man died after hitting a deer on the Dulles Airport Access Highway in Tysons last night (Wednesday).

Police responded to the westbound lanes about a mile west of the Capital Beltway (I-495) for a single-vehicle crash around 8:17 p.m., says the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which has jurisdiction over the Dulles Access Road.

Upon arriving, officers found the adult, male driver dead in the vehicle, which police described as a “ride-share Toyota minivan.”

An injured passenger was transported to Reston Hospital Center by the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, according to scanner traffic. Police confirmed that the passenger was a rideshare customer.

“Airport-bound traffic was detoured to the Dulles Toll Road during the accident reconstruction,” MWAA said.
