Driver of Vehicle Involved in Hit and Run of Pedestrian Sought by Loudoun County Sheriff's Office

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's assistance to help locate the driver of a vehicle involved in a hit and run involving a pedestrian on Friday afternoon.

Around 4:15 p.m., a 15-year-old male was struck by a small silver sedan at the intersection of Claiborne Parkway and Portsmouth Boulevard. The victim was attempting to cross Claiborne Parkway from the Portsmouth Boulevard side to the Breezyhill Drive side when he was struck by the sedan. The sedan was making a right turn from Portsmouth Boulevard onto Claiborne Parkway and struck the pedestrian within the crosswalk. The sedan stopped a short distance from the scene and the driver remained in the vehicle. The driver reportedly spoke with some bystanders before leaving the scene.

The victim was taken to a local emergency room by a family member where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Anyone with any information regarding the suspect vehicle or the identity of the driver is asked to contact the Deputy First Class S. Allen of the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Crash Reconstruction Unit at 703-737-8308.
