ALEXANDRIA (CBSDC) — A woman was killed following a road rage incident in Alexandria Friday morning.

Fairfax County Police responded to a report of an assault on Harrison Lane near Route 1 around 11:40 a.m. When they arrived they found the victim laying in the street.

Authorities believe the victim was injured after she got out of her vehicle and began arguing with another driver.

“At some point the situation did apparently escalate and the victim sustained a serious injury,” Fairfax County Police spokesperson Lucy Caldwell said.

The victim was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. Police have not released the victim’s identity.

The driver of the other vehicle left the scene before police arrived.

Anyone with information regarding the assault is asked to contact police.
