Pedestrian lying in Dumfries roadway struck by vehicle, dies at area hospital, PWC Police report

Fatal Crash Investigation

On September 18 at 7:34PM, investigators from the Prince William County Police Department’s Crash Investigation Unit responded to the area of Fraley Blvd near Graham Park Rd in Dumfries (22026) to investigate a crash involving a pedestrian who was lying in the road, according to a report from Sgt. Jonathan Perok, police department spokesman.

Perok said that the investigation revealed that a County Park Ranger was traveling northbound on Fraley Blvd when a man was observed lying in the middle of the roadway. The County Park Ranger pulled off to the side of the road to check on the man’s welfare.

At that time, a white male driver of a blue vehicle, traveling northbound, struck the pedestrian. The striking vehicle initially stopped before proceeding northbound.

The pedestrian was transported to an area hospital where he died as a result of his injuries. Perok said police investigators are working to determine why the pedestrian was lying the roadway prior to the collision and to identify the driver of the striking vehicle. Alcohol appears to be a factor.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident is asked to contact Prince William County Police at 703-792-6500.


          The pedestrian was identified as Alvin SMITH, 40, of Dumfries
