(Updated at 3:25 p.m.) A man has died after a driver hit him on Baron Cameron Avenue near The Spectrum at Reston Town Center last night (Monday).

Police and emergency medical services with the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department were dispatched around 8:22 p.m. to Baron Cameron Avenue at Fountain Drive for a crash where a driver struck a pedestrian, according to scanner traffic on Open MHz.

The pedestrian was transported to a hospital with injuries considered life-threatening. The man, identified as Khalid Magan, 37, of Reston, later died, Fairfax County Police Department announced today (Tuesday).

Police said the driver remained at the scene.

Based on a preliminary investigation, detectives believe Magan tried to cross Baron Cameron Avenue around 8 p.m. when the driver of a 2002 Ford-250 pickup truck heading west hit him, according to the FCPD, which says Magan was outside of a crosswalk.

At that intersection, Baron Cameron only has a crosswalk on the east side, and it’s marked by parallel lines without stripes. A narrow grass median with a concrete gutter separates the two eastbound lanes from the westbound lanes, which include two thru lanes, a left-turn lane and a right-turn lane.

“Preliminarily, detectives do not believe speed or alcohol are factors in the crash for the driver,” the FCPD said. “Alcohol is still under investigation for the pedestrian. Detectives continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash.”

Magan is the eighth pedestrian killed in a vehicle crash in Fairfax County this year and the second in October, following a fatal hit-and-run on Richmond Highway on Oct. 6. In addition, a teen was hospitalized with serious injuries by a crash on Route 50 last Thursday (Oct. 19).

At this time in 2022, the county had recorded 16 fatal pedestrian crashes, according to the FCPD. By the end of the year, 32 pedestrians had died, the most since at least 2010.
