Witnesses sought in Vienna bike crash

On Tuesday morning, April 28, at around 7:30 a.m. a cyclist was hit by a person driving a gray Subaru at the intersection of Park St and Maple Ave (Route 123). This is the intersection next to the small shopping strip that contains Noodles and Co., Chipotle, etc. The cyclist was riding through the crosswalk on the southeast side of Maple Ave (same side as Noodles and Co.), headed southwest away from Tysons. The traffic signal was red for the motorist in the Subaru, who turned right and struck the cyclist.

Anyone who has information about this crash please contact us. The cyclist was injured and is asking anyone who witnessed the crash to come forward.

This is the second bike crash we've heard about on Maple Ave. in the past two weeks. Another cyclist was injured when colliding with a motorist turning right onto Maple Ave. at Mill St. In both cases cyclists were riding against traffic on a sidewalk. This is the same location where David Marsden was killed in 2005.
