Cyclist killed in Tysons

According to ABC 7 news a bicyclist was killed while riding along Route 7 at the Beltway some time last night/early this morning. Police assume he was riding eastbound in the right lane on Route 7 and he was struck from behind. This is a very dangerous section of Route 7, with fast moving traffic entering and exiting the Beltway. It's a critical link into Tysons without any accommodations for pedestrians and cyclists. Many people cross here on foot and by bike because they have almost no other option.

The cyclist, who has not been identified, was left lying in the road and the motorist left the scene. According to the news article, the police "still know nothing specific about the striking vehicle, but say it may have minor damage to the right front portion. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477, e-mail at, text "TIP187" plus your message to CRIMES/274637 or call Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131."
