In Case You Were in the Area Sunday Night

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is searching for the driver involved in a single vehicle crash that took the life of an Ashburn man Sunday night.

The victim, Arturo Rivera, 35, was a passenger in a 2004 Toyota Sienna that was being operated by an unknown driver. The crash occurred on Loudoun County Parkway near Hillsboro Hunt Drive and was discovered by a motorist shortly after 10 PM. The driver was no longer at the scene and the victim was discovered outside of the vehicle.

The initial investigation indicates the vehicle was traveling in excess of the posted 45 mph speed limit westbound on Loudoun County Parkway. The vehicle left the roadway and proceeded into the grass median, causing the driver to lose control. The vehicle swerved back to the right and struck a guardrail on the northern shoulder. The victim, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle. He lost his life at the scene.

The Sheriff's Office is currently working to identify the driver of the vehicle. If you have any information about this crash, contact Deputy Specialist S. Allen of the Sheriff's Office Traffic Safety Unit at 703-737-8308. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919.
