A pedestrian struck by a car on a ramp for Interstate 395 two weeks ago died Tuesday as a result of his injuries, according to Alexandria police.

Nelson Javier Galdamez Reyes, 52, of no fixed address, was reportedly walking on the ramp from Duke Street to southbound I-395 when he was struck around 10 p.m. on Nov. 18.

The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene. Reyes was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

Members of the Criminal Investigations Section and Crash Reconstruction Team are investigating the collision, police said.

Anyone with information regarding the wreck should contact Detective Ryan Clinch at 703-746-6673.

A grade-separated crossing of I-395 at this location--similar to the one at I-395 and Seminary Rd--has long been very much needed


If he was walking onto southbound i395 (according to the article) there's no benefit to doing that.
