Witnesses Sought to Fatal Belmont Ridge Road Crash

Virginia State Trooper A.N. Patsios continues to investigate last week’s fatal crash that claimed the life of a 34-year-old driver from Aldie and injured her 4-year-old daughter. The state police are looking to hear from witnesses about the crash.

The crash occurred Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 7:20 a.m. on Belmont Ridge Road near Legacy Park Drive. A dark gray, 4-door 2012 Volkswagen CC was traveling south on Belmont Ridge Road when it ran off the left side of the road, went over the curb, through the median and into the northbound lanes and struck a northbound 2013 Subaru head-on.

The driver of the Subaru, Ammie K. Cho, died at the scene. Her daughter, who was secured in a child seat, was transported to Inova Loudoun Hospital for treatment of injuries described as serious, but not-life-threatening.

The driver of the Volkswagen was an 18-year-old Ashburn resident. He was transported to Reston Hospital Center for treatment of injuries described as serious, but not-life-threatening.

Several witnesses have come forward already, but investigators want to talk with anyone else who may have seen the crash occur or saw the 2012 Volkswagen CC on Belmont Ridge Road prior to the crash. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Virginia State Police Leesburg Office at 703-771-2533 or send an email toquestions@vsp.virginia.gov.
