The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is seeking potential witnesses to the crash that killed two passengers near Arcola last month.
The incident began just before 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 22 when a deputy tried to pull over a speeding car on Old Ox Road near Dulles West Boulevard. A short chase ensued, but the deputy lost contact with car and cut off the pursuit. A short time later, the deputy found the car crashed into a tree in the area of Evergreen Mills Road and Stone Springs Boulevard.
The driver got out of the vehicle but his passengers died as the car caught on fire and burned. The victims were Kyle W. Youngblood, 29, of Berkeley Springs, WV, and Cody R. Cooling, 27, of Washington, DC.
Investigators have determined there may have been three vehicles in the area around the time of the crash and are asking those drivers and other potential witnesses to contact Investigator S. Allen at 703-737-8308.
The driver, David G. Brown, 25, of Ashburn, was charged with reckless driving, although additional charges are possible.
