READ: Fairfax Man Killed in Crash Into T-Mobile Store
"City of Fairfax Police are continuing their investigation," the department said in a news release Thursday morning, adding that they encourage anyone to come forward who witnessed the crash.
So far, the investigation indicates that a silver 2004 BMW 530I was traveling east on Route 50 and had stopped for the red traffic signal. As the light cycled to green, the vehicle quickly accelerated across three lanes of traffic and continued briefly onto eastbound Fairfax Boulevard. The vehicle then left the roadway and continued across a median, finally striking the exterior of the building complex at 10955 Fairfax Blvd., which is occupied by T-Mobile.
"The driver of the vehicle - Vladislav Bochkov, 29, of Lochleven Trail in Fairfax - did not appear to be wearing a seatbelt, and was transported to Fairfax Hospital where he was pronounced dead," police said. "There were no other occupants in the vehicle and nobody else was injured at the scene."
