Prince William police are now looking for two vehicles in the death of a Dumfries man struck and killed in the northbound lanes of U.S. 1.

After an autopsy Wednesday, investigators believe that Alvin Smith, 40, was struck by two vehicles Tuesday evening, police spokesperson Sgt. Jonathan Perok said. Smith died at a local hospital from his injuries.

A county park ranger was traveling in the area of Fraley Boulevard (northbound U.S. 1 through Dumfries) near Graham Park Road around 7:34 p.m. when he saw Smith lying in the road.

He pulled off to the side of the road to check on the man's welfare when a blue vehicle struck Smith, Perok said. The driver, identified as a white male in his 30s, stopped initially before proceeding north.

On Thursday, Perok noted that parts of a vehicle recovered at the scene indicate that one of the vehicles possibly involved was a 2014-16 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Smith was not near a crosswalk where he was located, Perok noted.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident is asked to contact Prince William County Police at 703-792-6500.
