UPDATE: Ashburn Pedestrian Accident Claims Life of Boy, Injures Mother

Here's an update from the Loudoun County Sheriffs Office on the pedestrian accident that claimed the life of a young boy last evening.
The Sheriffs Office reports that an 8-year-old Ashburn boy lost his life after he and his 29-year-old mother were struck by a vehicle as they attempted to cross Farmwell Road Monday night.     
Around 9:15 p.m. Loudoun Sheriffs Deputies responded to the scene where a 2004 Toyota Camry was traveling westbound on Farmwell Road and struck the mother and son as they attempted to cross Farmwell Road at Ashburn Village Boulevard. According to independent witnesses the driver had a green traffic signal as the Toyota traveled westbound.   
The child, Beshoy B. E. Shokr, was taken to the Lansdowne Campus of Inova Loudoun Hospital where he was pronounced dead. His mother, Eman S. Thabet, was airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital where she is currently listed in stable condition.   
The male driver of the vehicle remained on the scene and has been cooperative.  Neither alcohol nor speed is believed to be a factor.   
The Loudoun County Sheriffs Office Crash Reconstruction Unit continues to investigate the incident.
