An adult man was taken to the hospital yesterday (Monday) afternoon after he was hit by a vehicle on Frying Pan Road in the Herndon area.

Police were dispatched at 2:57 p.m. for the crash at the Fieldcreek Drive intersection outside the Somerset townhomes, according to scanner traffic on Open MHz.

“The pedestrian does appear to be conscious,” a dispatcher said.

The Fairfax County Police Department reported that the pedestrian had been transported to the hospital but didn’t describe his condition. Comments on the scanner suggest his injuries were at least initially considered life-threatening.

The driver of the vehicle in the crash remained at the scene, police said.

Eastbound Frying Pan Road was shut down at Fieldcreek Drive while the FCPD’s Crash Reconstruction Unit detectives investigated the crash. The road reopened shortly before 6 p.m.

“The pedestrian remains hospitalized and detectives from our Crash Reconstruction Unit continue to investigate,” the FCPD’s public affairs bureau told FFXnow this morning (Tuesday), noting that any further updates will be posted on its blog and Twitter.
