A 16-year-old is in critical condition after he was struck by a vehicle while riding his bike in Sumerduck on Monday afternoon, according to a news release from the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office.

Around 2:33 p.m., a 911 call came into the Fauquier County Emergency Communications Center for a pedestrian struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Silver Hill Road and Silver Hill Court near Sumerduck. The teen was struck while biking with family members, the release said.

The driver of the striking vehicle was a 79-year-old woman who stopped at the scene. No charges have been filed against the driver as the investigation is ongoing.

“A helicopter landing zone was established at nearby Mary Walter Elementary School and the victim was flown to Fairfax Hospital,” the news release said.

While deputies secured the crash scene, a Sumerduck man reportedly refused to follow a deputy’s directions and drove through the crash investigation scene. The man, identified as 53-year-old Mark Manning of Sumerduck, was arrested and charged with obstruction of justice and crossing established police lines, according to police. He was jailed on a $2,000 bond.

“The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office urges motorists and pedestrians to pay close attention while driving on our roadways,” the news release said. “Many roads in Fauquier County pass through rural landscapes with blind curves and hills and demand the full attention of travelers. Moreover, summer means more children playing and more holidaymakers. And be sure to always follow law enforcement directions when approaching police-controlled areas to avoid further injury.”
