A 65-year-old man, who was riding his bicycle on the W & OD Trail in Northern Virginia was hit by a drunk driver.

The driver, identified as 28-year-old Mehak Chopra of Kennedy Drive, McLean was driving a 2005 Toyota at a high speed on Saturday, June 1 at around 8:30 p.m., says Fairfax County Police in a news release.  No motorized vehicles are allowed along the trail, which runs 45 miles from Alexandria to Purcellville, Va.

Police believe that Chopra entered the trail in the Reston area and traveled at high speed. Vienna Police received numerous calls from residents and drivers who were almost struck and had to jump out of the motorist’s way to avoid collision.

The driver then continued into the town of Vienna, where a police officer pulled her over in the 300 block of Maple Avenue.

Chopra was taken to the Adult Detention Center where Fairfax County Police charged her with felony hit and run.

Reportedly, the victim suffered serious injuries due to the collision.

    FIRST, I WILL TYPE, I DRINK A MINIMUM OF 150 ml OF SCOTCH WHISKEY ON A DAILY BASIS.

    THE ACCOMPANYING PHOTOGRAPH AND “NON-ANGLO” NAME OF THE SUSPECT “CAUGHT MY EYE.” I ASSUME Mehak Chopra IS OF MIDDLE-EASTERN- (OR, INDIAN- [the nation]) DESCENT. ALCOHOLISM – THEREFORE – IS A LOGICAL OUTCOME FOR A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO ARE CONSTANTLY “LOOKING OVER THEIR SHOULDERS” IN FEAR OF BEING LABELED A “terrorist,” BY CAUCASIAN-AMERICANS.

    As she turned the corner near the park I could see she was texting on a phone. She blew by us and was just flat out flying. Much like you see in a drifting or sanctioned road rally in Nova Scotia . No regard for life or limb just pedal to the metal and hammer down. I could estimate the cars speed by saying highway or beltway mph. She was a demon on wheels. Needs to do time and never be allowed to ever get behind the wheel of a motorized vehicle again!

      “Kelly B. Book,”

      WHAT ABOUT THE POPULAR CAUCASIAN-MALE PAST-TIME OF “DRAG-RACING” ON CITY/TOWN STREETS?

      DO NOT ALLOW MIDDLE-EASTERN BIAS TO DESTROY FAIRNESS AND REASON.
