Alexandria man dies after truck crash; GW Parkway will close Wednesday morning for investigation

Ioannis Miliarakis, 69, of Alexandria died Tuesday from injuries suffered after his pickup truck crashed into a tree in the median of northbound George Washington Memorial Parkway about 6 a.m. Monday, according to U.S. Park Police.

Miliarakis was the only occupant in the single-vehicle accident about one mile north of Spout Run Parkway near the First Overlook.

He was briefly pinned in his truck but was freed by Arlington County Fire Department personnel and taken to Fairfax Hospital for treatment.

Accident reconstruction investigators will close the northbound GW Parkway Wednesday from 10 a.m. to about noon in the area of the first overlook and divert all northbound traffic at Spout Run Parkway, said Sgt. David Schlosser, a Park Police spokesman.

Motorists needing to travel to areas served by the northern end of the George Washington Parkway should take Spout Run Parkway to Interstate 66 to Route 267 for access to Route 123 and the Capital Beltway. Motorists should add up to 30 minutes of travel time for those trips, Park Police cautioned.

Southbound traffic should not be affected by lane closures, police said.
