The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Crash Reconstruction Unit is working with the Purcellville Police Department to determine the cause of a fatal crash on Main Street yesterday.
An 89-year-old Purcellville man was driving in a parking lot around 2 p.m. when he lost control of his 2007 Ford Escape. The driver nearly struck a pedestrian before crashing into a guardrail and fence. The vehicle then continued down an embankment where the car rolled over, landing on its wheels.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
