*NOTE: Since September, the Prince William County Police Department has investigated seven fatal crashes, six of which involved pedestrians wearing dark-colored clothing who were determined to have been walking or crossing within the roadway, outside of a crosswalk, and during dimly lit or dark hours of day. Pedestrian-related crashes can be prevented by planning time, knowing your route, obeying all posted signs and signals, dressing to be seen, limiting phone and other distractions, avoiding impairments, and crossing roadways only in a crosswalk or other designated area.
