A Falls Church man, Leroy Jewell, died Wednesday after he was struck by a car.

The area is close to the Dunn Loring Merrifield metro station.

The driver of the Corolla remained at the scene. Jewell was transported to a local hospital where he died, according to Fairfax County Police.

The crash remains under investigation but speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors.
