Fairfax County police continue to investigate the death of a pedestrian Monday evening near Ft. Belvoir.
It happened around 7:30 p.m. on Route 1 near Hagel Circle. Officers say 52-year-old Laura Lynn Cornelius, of Lorton, stepped into the southbound lanes of the highway and was hit by a 2011 Toyota Camry. A second vehicle, a 2007 Dodge Caliber, tried to swerve out of the way but also hit Cornelius.
Both drivers remained on the scene. Officers say neither speed nor alcohol was a factor with the drivers but they don’t yet know if Cornelius had been drinking.
Cornelius died after being taken to a hospital.
