Mohammad Jabour ID'd as victim of Fairfax City hit-and-run
FAIRFAX CITY, Va. (AP) - Fairfax City police have identified a man who was critically injured in a hit-and-run.
Police say 33-year-old Mohammad Jabour was hit by an SUV while walking on a Fairfax Boulevard sidewalk about 10:40 p.m. Friday. Police say Jabour was walking with a 17-year-old friend when he was hit and thrown more than 50 feet into a parked vehicle. The SUV left the scene.
"They were safe on the sidewalk. They were doing what they were supposed to be doing, and the vehicle came up out of the roadway onto the sidewalk and strikes him here," Morgan Derick said.
Police say Jabour was taken to a hospital where he was admitted in critical condition.
Fairfax City Police on Tuesday morning said they located Jabour's mother and brother, who are with him at the hospital now.
Jabour had recently moved to the area from West Virginia. A native of Afghanistan, he worked for a short time at a Burger King on Fairfax Drive.
Officers believe there was also a passenger inside the vehicle. They are also reviewing footage from surveillance and red light cameras mounted in the area. Police said the suspect vehicle is a white, late model SUV with damage to a front head light or fog light.
