A man was found dead along I-66 in Fairfax County due to an apparent hit-and-run crash, police said.

Virginia State Police found Jerry Knight, 51, of Arlington, Virginia lying next to a black 2012 Intercept moped at the Falls Church exit of I-66 in Fairfax County, according to a release. 

Knight was wearing a helmet when police found his body Thursday about 4:35 p.m. police said, but it is illegal to drive mopeds on the interstate in Virginia.

There were no other vehicles at the scene when police arrived, but further investigation revealed the moped did collide with another vehicle, which has not yet been located. 

This is the second fatal crash on a small motorcycle or moped in Fairfax County this month.

Anyone who might have seen this moped or witnessed the crash is asked to call Virginia State Police at 703-803-0026.
