The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal crash that occurred Thursday morning in Sterling and is asking for witness to come forward.
Deputies responded to the area of Pebble Run Place and Overland Drive west of Dulles Airport shortly before 6 a.m. and found a Jeep Wrangler that had rolled several times. The driver died at the scene.
Investigators are working to determine why the driver lost control of the vehicle. A witness reported seeing the driver of the Jeep and the driver of another vehicle, possibly a dark-colored, two-door Honda or Toyota sedan, speeding in the area just prior to the crash. The driver of that vehicle left the area.
Investigators said the two vehicles may have been speeding and driving recklessly on Rt. 50, Loudoun County Parkway and Old Ox Road prior the crash.
The name of the driver has not been released and is pending notification of his next of kin.
Anyone with any information regarding the crash is asked to contact Investigator R. Beach at 703-777-1021.
It is the 18th highway fatality in Loudoun County in 2017; the second this week.
