Woman Fatally Struck Outside King Street Metro [Updated]

by Lee Hernly, Editor

Was walking home tonight from the King Street Metro about 6:00 p.m. when I noticed a lot of police cars, both Metro Transit Police as well as Alexandria Police on the scene in the Kiss & Ride lot. A nice policeman tried to play it off as saying it was an accident on a cold and very slow night for police. I thought it was just a fender bender in the lot until I saw the fire department show up and police putting up the crime scene (caution) tape.

The Post’s Breaking News Blog has more details on the incident:

A 25-year-old woman was struck by a van and fatally injured Friday night at the King Street Metrorail station in Alexandria, city police said.

The incident occurred about 6 p.m. near the center of a parking lot, police said. The woman was taken to a hospital where she died.

Police said she lived in Prince George’s County, but her name was not immediately available.
