Update: Victim in Fatal Hit-and-Run Crash Identified

Posted on by

Reston Police District – Detectives from our Crash Reconstruction Unit are asking anyone with information on the fatal hit-and-run crash over the weekend to come forward. 16-year-old Marvin Daniel Cruz Serrano of Reston was hit while crossing the street Saturday night, and the driver left the scene. The car involved was likely a sedan based on witness accounts, but we don’t know the model or color. The vehicle would have heavy front-end damage but still be drivable.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Crash Reconstruction Unit witness phone line: 703-280-0543. Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Solvers by visiting http://www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org, or calling 1-866-411-TIPS (8477). They can also be sent in via text by texting “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES (274637). Text STOP to 274637 to cancel, or HELP to 274637 for help. Message and data rates may apply. Anonymous tipsters are eligible for cash rewards of $100 to $1000 if their information leads to an arrest.

We are able to share Serrano’s identity publicly, despite him being a juvenile crime victim, because his family provided our detectives their written consent.

Fatal Pedestrian Hit-and-Run Crash in Reston

Reston Police District – Crash Reconstruction Unit detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a vehicle and its driver involved in a crash that killed a 16-year-old pedestrian. Last night at about 5:40, officers responded to the report of a pedestrian hit-and-run crash on South Lakes Drive and Castle Rock Square in Reston. The teen was attempting to cross South Lakes Drive towards Castle Rock Square when he was hit by a vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene. There is a crosswalk at the intersection and detectives are still conducting their investigation to determine if the teen was using the crosswalk. At this point, detectives believe the involved vehicle was a sedan, but an exact model or color is unclear. The car would have heavy front-end damage.

We can’t release the name of the victim in this case because of Virginia Code 19.2-11.2. This law went into effect on July 1st of last year. It prohibits Virginia law enforcement agencies from directly or indirectly identifying deceased juvenile victims of a crime without parental consent.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Crash Reconstruction Unit witness phone line: 703-280-0543. Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Solvers by visiting http://www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org, or calling 1-866-411-TIPS (8477). They can also be sent in via text by texting “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES (274637). Text STOP to 274637 to cancel, or HELP to 274637 for help. Message and data rates may apply. Anonymous tipsters are eligible for cash rewards of $100 to $1000 if their information leads to an arrest.
