Man Hospitalized After Being Struck By Vehicle in the West End

A man remained hospitalized with serious, though non-life threatening, injuries after a crash on Yoakum Parkway yesterday, according to police.

The 300 block of Yoakum Parkway was closed in both directions around 5 p.m. yesterday (Monday), up to Stevenson Avenue, police tweeted. An adult male pedestrian was struck by a vehicle, police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine told ALXnow, with serious but life-threatening injuries that left him hospitalized.

Yoakum Parkway is a popular thoroughfare near Landmark Mall, connecting several residential communities to Edsall Road and the Beltway.

Ballantine said the crash is still being investigated by the police department’s crash team because of the seriousness of the incident.
