A 61-year-old Falls Church man was struck by a vehicle and killed July 25 as he crossed a road in Tysons, Fairfax County police said.

The event marks the county’s eighth pedestrian fatality in 2021.

The incident occurred at 11:05 p.m. on Chain Bridge Road at International Drive. The pedestrian, identified as Jose Matias Monjaras, was crossing Chain Bridge Road when he was struck by a 2015 Toyota Corolla being driven north on Chain Bridge Road. The driver, who traversed the intersection on a green light, remained at the scene.

Despite lifesaving efforts by rescue personnel, Monjaras succumbed to his injuries. Preliminarily, speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors for the driver, police said. The investigation remains active and details of the investigation will be presented to the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney for review.
