Prince William police generic

A 34-year-old Haymarket man was killed Tuesday morning crossing Linton Hall Road in Gainesville.

Police were called to the scene near Whitney Road at  6:39 a.m., after a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado traveling southbound on Linton Hall Road struck a pedestrian.

The victim, identified as Corey Nicholas Aldrich of Haymarket, was crossing Linton Hall Road from a nearby service station to Gateway Center Plaza in a designated crosswalk, said Prince William County police Sgt. Jonathan Perok.

The striking vehicle was determined to have had the right-of-way with a green signal while the pedestrian signal indicated not to cross, Perok said.

Aldrich was taken to an area hospital, where he died of his injuries.

The striking vehicle, driven by a 62-year-old Gainesville man, remained on scene. No other injuries were reported.

This is the fourth pedestrian fatality in Prince William County in 2019, and the second in less than a week. A man was struck and killed in a hit-and-run wreck on Dec. 11 in the Woodbridge area.
