A woman hit by a vehicle in Springfield in late December has now died.

Fu-Tzu Wong, 63, was using a crosswalk to cross Huntsman Blvd at Bridle Wood Drive in the evening of Dec. 27 when “an unidentified vehicle” struck her, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Officers responded to the crash around 7:53 p.m., but the vehicle was gone when they arrived. Wong was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The FCPD says its detectives were informed yesterday (Monday) that Wong has died from her injuries.

“The investigation into the crash continues as detectives continue to locate both the vehicle and the driver involved,” the FCPD says.

The department advises anyone with information about the crash to contact its Crash Reconstruction Unit detectives at 703-280-0543. Anonymous tips can be shared via Crime Solvers by phone (703-246-4676) or online.

Wong’s death brings the county’s pedestrian death toll for 2023 up to 11, based on Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles crash data.
