A 30-year old man has been identified as the victim of a fatal crash in the City of Fairfax.

Luis Mejia  Costaneda died at the hospital shortly after the crash on the intersection of Lee Highway and Waples Mill Road. According to police, the victim was driving a moped near the intersection when he hit the center median and a sign coming to rest in the left turn lane of Lee Highway. The driver of a 2008 Nissan Altima was stopped for the traffic light and witnessed the crash. Police say that person remained on the scene.
