The case against a Sterling man charged in a fatal crash on Rt. 28 will be submitted to a Loudoun grand jury.
Andre M. Glenn, 26, appeared in Loudoun County District Court this afternoon for a preliminary hearing on charges of felony involuntary manslaughter, DUI, and driving on a suspended license.
The crash happened just after 2 a.m. Feb. 21 on Rt. 28 near Dulles Airport.
Glenn was driving a Jeep Wrangler northbound with three passengers. The group had left The Bungalow in Chantilly after last call at the bar. The jeep hit a jersey barrier, with the crash ejecting two female passengers.
During the preliminary hearing, one of the female passengers said she was nervous about Glenn’s driving after leaving the bar and even texted a friend about her concerns. She soon fell asleep, but woke up after the crash—in time to see her friend, Gabrielle M. Perry, 22, try to get up off the pavement when another car hit her. That car did not stop, she said. Perry died at the scene.
Deputy S.D. Allen said Glenn registered a blood alcohol concentration of 0.14 when tested at the Adult Detention Center more than an hour after the crash. The legal limit in Virginia is 0.08.
Glenn is expected back in court May 9, following the grand jury’s review.
