Virginia State Police identify two men killed in I-495 crash near Telegraph Road

Alexandria Police have released the identities of the two men killed on Insterstate 495 near Telegraph Road on May 12.

Abdellah Bougrine, 54, of Alexandria, and Driss Bougrine, 59, of Fairfax, died after being hit by vehicles after the 2016 Toyota Corolla they were driving stopped in the middle of the road. The two men got out of the Toyota and were then hit moments later by two vehicles.

“(The) male driver and male passenger exited the Toyota and were outside of it when the Toyota was struck moments later by a westbound 2000 Ford Ranger pickup truck,” Virginia State Police said in a release. “Both the driver and passenger were also struck. The impact of the crash caused the Toyota to run off the right side of the interstate and into the guardrail. The Ford came to rest on the left shoulder. A westbound 2008 Mazda Miata also struck one of the men.”

A GoFundMe campaign for the men raised $15,500, and is no longer accepting donations.

No charges have been filed, and the crash remains under investigation, according to VSP.
