A 22-year-old Lorton man was killed early today (Monday) in a pedestrian accident on Interstate 95 near the Route 123 exit in Prince William County, Virginia State Police say.

Isaac A. Salgado was one of three men who set out on foot after their Honda CRV ran out of gas. Not wanting to pay for a tow truck, the three were trying to walk to a nearby gas station when Salgado was struck by a tractor-trailer truck. He was taken to Potomac Sentara Hospital, where he died, according to Virginia State Police Trooper M.J. Kryznefski, who is investigating the accident.

Salgado’s companions were not injured. Nor was the tractor-trailer driver, a 38-year-old male from Hagerstown, Md.

The Virginia State Police Crash Reconstruction Team and Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Fairfax Field Office are assisting with the ongoing investigation.
