Motorcycle Crash Results in Fatality

Fair Oaks Police District – Detectives from our Crash Reconstruction Unit are investigating after a man was found dead near a motorcycle yesterday around 1:56 p.m. Officers responded to the 4900 block of Alliance Drive in Fairfax after a groundskeeper found the wreckage and the body of an obviously deceased man nearby.

Preliminary, detectives believe the operator was riding a motorcycle from Lee Highway to northbound Fairfax County Parkway when the motorcycle ran off the right shoulder of the ramp and came to rest in a wooded area adjacent to a runoff pond. Detectives have found no indication that any other vehicles were involved and have not determined if speed or alcohol were factors. Positive identification will be made by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Anyone with information about this crash is asked to contact our Crash Reconstruction Unit at 703-280-0543.
