(Updated at 6:35 p.m.) A driver hit three pedestrians on Herndon Parkway near the Elden Street intersection, police say.
Herndon Parkway’s outer loop is currently closed from Elden Street outside H-Mart to Summerfield Drive in response to the crash, according to the Herndon Police Department.
“One victim transported to an area hospital, 1 victim minor injuries, and 1 pedestrian victim still being tended to on scene,” Herndon police said.
Police were dispatched to the 1100 block of Herndon Parkway around 5:03 p.m. after an SUV driver reportedly went onto the sidewalk and struck a male pedestrian in a gravel parking lot, according to scanner traffic on Open MHz.
The three pedestrian victims included a boy who was found unconscious, a man and a woman estimated to be in her mid-20s who got pinned under the vehicle, according to police and Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department scanner traffic.
The boy was transported to the emergency room at Inova Fairfax Hospital, an FCFRD responder said on the scanner at 5:13 p.m. A police officer said at 5:25 p.m. that the female pedestrian who had to be extricated from under the vehicle was transported to Reston Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The driver remained at the scene.
The Herndon Police Department said just before 6:30 p.m. that two pedestrians were hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, but the circumstances of the crash and the ages of the victims haven’t been confirmed.
