JUST IN: Juvenile arrested for alleged hit-and-run that injured Alexandria firefighters

A 17-year-old Falls Church male was arrested charged with two counts of felony hit and run after an incident that injured two Alexandria firefighters on the morning of Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) in the Landmark area.

The incident occurred at around 4 a.m. in the 300 block of S. Reynolds Street. The suspect, who was driving a dark-colored sports utility vehicle, was arrested by Fairfax County Police.

He was found slumped behind the wheel of the vehicle in the 6300 block of Little River Turnpike — less than two miles away from where the incident occurred, according to a search warrant.

“While they were loading equipment onto their fire truck, a dark colored vehicle struck two firefighters and part of the truck,” police said in a news release. “The driver of the dark colored vehicle did not stop and sped away from the scene. Both firefighters were treated at a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and were released the same day.”

Alexandria Police found a case of Corona beer on the floor of the passenger’s side seat of the suspect’s car, as well as two open beer bottles in the front cup holders, police said in the search warrant.

The suspect admitted to police that he’d been drinking throughout the evening at his aunt’s house in Fairfax County, and that he drove a friend home in the City, police said in the warrant. He also did not provide police with his friend’s name or address.
