An 80-year-old Gainesville man has died as a result of injuries he sustained late last month when he was struck by an SUV while riding an electric bike, according to police.
Police officers and rescue units responded to the intersection of Linton Hall and Devlin roads at about 4:27 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 31, after a 2020 Toyota Highlander making a right turn onto Linton Hall Road from southbound Devlin Road struck the victim, identified as Tae Joon Byun, 80, of Gainesville, according to a Prince William County police news release.
Byun was riding an Ancheer DX3000 e-bike and was in the crosswalk when the accident occurred. He was not wearing a helmet and separated from the bike when he was struck, the release said.
The driver of the Highlander remained at the scene. Byun was transported to an area hospital and died as a result of injuries on Friday, Sept. 3. Police crash investigators were notified of his death on Thursday, Sept. 9, the release said.
No charges have yet been filed in connection with the incident but are pending consultation with the Prince William County commonwealth’s attorney’s office, the release said.
