The Fairfax County Police Department said detectives from their Crash Reconstruction Unit are investigating the Monday, June 24 fatal pedestrian crash in Centreville. Around 9:50 p.m., officers responded to the intersection of Braddock Road and Pickwick Road in Centreville for two pedestrians struck by a vehicle. Preliminarily, detectives determined the driver of a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee traveling east on Braddock Road attempted to make a left turn on Pickwick Road when he struck Lubia Mirasol Vasquez Mateo, 46, of Clifton, crossing Pickwick Road, not in the crosswalk, with another adult man. The police said that both men were transported to the hospital. Mateo, with life-threatening injuries, was pronounced deceased at the hospital. The other pedestrian sustained injuries considered non-life-threatening. Detectives do not believe speed or alcohol were factors in the crash and will continue investigating its circumstances. The vehicle's driver remained at the scene.
