Mohamed-Kareem Mohamed charged in fatal accident
(WJLA) - Police say bad tire tread caused a fatal pedestrian accident in Woodbridge last weekend.
Mohamed-Kareem Mohamed, 21, was driving his BMW near the intersection of Old Bridge Road and Clipper Drive just before 9:40 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle. The car ran onto the sidewalk, striking Zenaida Ines Jimenez, 58, who was walking her dog.
Jimenez was transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Her dog was not injured.
Mohamed remained on scene.
Police say one of Mohamed's tires had insufficient tread, causing the car to lose control on the wet road.
Mohamed was charged Wednesday with reckless driving and insufficient tire tread depth. Bond was set at $10,000.
