Cyclist dies in Fairfax crash

An 82-year-old Falls Church area man died Thursday of injuries he received when he was hit by a truck while riding his bike in the Seven Corners area of Fairfax County last month. Police said Minh Van, of the 3300 block of Nevius Street, was trying to cross Willston Drive near Route 50 on November 24. A man driving a 2003 Dodge pickup truck, turning from Willston Drive on to Route 50, struck Van. Van was hospitalized until his death, police said. Investigators do not believe speed or alcohol were involved, and no charges have been filed.

Va. court reconsiders police GPS use

Two weeks after the Virginia Court of Appeals ruled that it was fine for police to use portable global positioning systems to track criminal suspects, the court has now decided to rehear the case, according to an order entered on Thursday. The court ruled in the case of David L. Foltz Jr., a convicted sex offender whom Fairfax County police suspected might be assaulting women. Detectives placed a global positioning system device inside the bumper of his work van, then reviewed his movements and found he had been in the vicinity of a recent assault. Then police followed him and actually arrested him in the process of attacking another woman.
