Posted on by

Mason Police District – Detectives investigating the hit-and-run that left a Falls Church woman and her 12-year-old daughter injured have released photos of car parts found at the scene of the crash. The photos show a side view mirror from the passenger side of a Mercedes sedan and the lower front grille. After consultation with representatives from Mercedes, it was determined the vehicle is likely a dark blue C-class sedan manufactured between 2012 and 2015.

The crash happened shortly before 10 Saturday night. The two pedestrians were attempting to cross Columbia Pike at Tyler Street when they were hit by a car heading westbound on Columbia Pike. They were in a marked crosswalk, but detectives note that it was dark out and raining heavily at the time.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about the crash, car or driver involved to call 703-280-0543. They are also asking staff at auto body shops to be on the lookout for any customers bringing in similar Mercedes sedans for repair.
