A 19-year-old Leesburg woman was locked up Thursday after taking the car of an acquaintance and crashing during an alleged drunken-driving incident.
According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to the area of Riverpoint Drive and Calpharns Mill Court about 5:30 a.m. after a resident reported the woman had taken a car without permission. Other calls reported a reckless driver near Kipheart Drive.
The car was speeding and riding on the wheel rim with sparks flying. A hit-and-run crash was reported at the Rivercreek Parkway/Crosstail Boulevard intersection after the driver ran a red light.
Jasmine R. Herrarte was charged with hit and run, unauthorized use of a vehicle, DUI (under 21-years-of age), driving on a revoked license and possession of alcohol by someone under the age of 21. She was held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
