Victim was Michael J. Henley, 22, of Fairfax Station
Fairfax Station resident Michael J. Henley, 22, was struck by two vehicles Saturday night and killed while attempting to cross Silverbrook Road, according to Fairfax County Police.
It was shortly before 6 p.m. when Henley attempted to cross the street, near Crosspointe Drive.
According to Henley's facebook page, he graduated from South County Secondary School in 2007 and was currently a student at James Madison University.
During the preliminary investigation, crash reconstruction detectives determined that Henley was trying to cross Silverbrook Road from north to south.
A 2010 GMC Acadia driven by a 36-year-old Fairfax Station man was traveling east on Silverbrook approaching Crosspointe Drive when Henley stepped in front of the vehicle and was struck. The victim was thrown into the westbound lane on Silverbrook Road and was then hit by a second vehicle; a 2005 Chrysler mini-van being driven by a 46-year-old Fairfax Station man.
Both vehicles remained on the scene. The victim was medevaced to a local hospital and pronounced dead. Neither speed nor alcohol is believed to be a factor in this crash. The investigation will continue and no charges have been placed.
