Police: Hit-And-Run Driver Strikes, Kills Teen in Reston

A teenager has been struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver in Reston, Virginia, Saturday night, police say.

The 16-year-old boy was struck by a sedan about 5:40 p.m. crossing South Lakes Drive toward Castle Rock Square, Fairfax County police said. There is a crosswalk in the area, and police are investigating whether the teen was using it.

Police are searching for a sedan with heavy front-end damage, but are unsure of a model or color.

Under Virginia law, police are barred from releasing the victim's name because he was a juvenile.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 703-691-2131.

Editor's Note: Police previously said the sedan was gray or silver, but now say they do not know.
