Sherrifs Office Looking for Witnesses to Two Vehicle Crash Monday Evening on Braddock Road

The Loudoun County Sheriffs Office is seeking witnesses to a two vehicle crash that occurred on Braddock Road near Supreme Drive Monday evening near Aldie.

Around 7:15 p.m. on Monday, April 18, Christopher J. Schemmel, 18, of Stone Ridge, was eastbound on Braddock Road in a 2006 Infiniti sedan when he turned in front of a westbound 2002 Ford Escape. The driver of the Ford, Donald M. Legg, 22, of Purcellville was airlifted to INOVA Fairfax Hospital. He is expected to fully recover.

During the course of the crash investigation it was determined that Legg was driving under the influence of drugs. He was charged with DUI-D and with failure to wear a seatbelt.

Schemmel was transported to Fair Oaks Hospital for non-life threatening injuries and has since been released.

The crash remains under investigation by members of the Loudoun County Sheriffs Office Crash Reconstruction Unit. Witnesses to the crash who have not talked directly with a Sheriff’s Deputy are asked to contact DFC S. Allen at 703-737-8308.
