A child has been hospitalized after they were hit by a driver just down the road from Chantilly High School.
“It’s going to be an approximately 8-year-old versus a red Ford F150,” an officer said on the scanner.
The pedestrian was taken to a hospital, but they are now in stable condition, a Fairfax County Police Department spokesperson says. The driver, an adult man, remained at the scene, according to police.
The left-turn lane from Stringfellow Road to Poplar Tree was shut down for police to investigate the crash, but the road reopened around 6:26 p.m., the FCPD said.
