Grand Jury Issues Manslaughter Indictment in Fatal Rt. 28 Crash

A Loudoun grand jury this week handed up a manslaughter indictment against a 26-year-old Sterling man in connection with a Feb. 21 fatal crash on Rt. 28.

Andre M. Glenn, 26, appeared in Loudoun County Circuit Court Tuesday, when a three-day trial was set for Dec. 5. He is charged with 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.

According to investigators, 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 in District Court last month, one of the 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.

At the hearing, 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.
