A man trying to cross the northbound lanes of the Capital Beltway in West Falls Church early Saturday was struck by a tractor-trailer and killed, according to state police.

The crash occurred about 12:30 a.m. in the northbound lanes of Interstate 495, south of Route 7 in Fairfax County. Police later identified the victim as Barrington Holt, 82, of Falls Church. He died at the scene.

Police said the man had been driving north on the highway when his vehicle went off the road and struck a concrete barrier and a guardrail.

Police said Holt got out of his vehicle and tried to cross the highway when he was struck. A second tractor-trailer struck the rear of the first truck, police said. Both of the tractor-trailer drivers were wearing seat belts and were not injured in the crash, according to police.
