Ashburn man indicted on manslaughter charges after fatal Arcola crash

David G. Brown
An Ashburn man who was driving during a fatal crash in Arcola in January has been charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter.

David G. Brown, 25, of Ashburn, was indicted by a Loudoun grand jury this week following the Jan. 22 incident that claimed the lives of Kyle W. Youngblood, 29, of Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, and Cody Cooling, 27, of Washington D.C.

Shortly before 1:30 a.m. Jan. 22, a Loudoun Sheriff’s Deputy was running RADAR and observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed heading northbound on Route 606 (Old Ox Road) near Dulles West Boulevard. The deputy initiated a traffic stop, and, according to reports, Brown disregarded a red traffic light and continued at a high rate of speed. The deputy marked in pursuit before losing sight of the vehicle. A short time later the deputy discovered the driver crashed into a tree in the area of Evergreen Mills Road and Stone Springs Boulevard near Arcola. The total time of the traffic pursuit was less than 30 seconds, according to LCSO.

Brown was pulled from the car by the deputy as the vehicle went up in flames. Two passengers inside died at the scene.

Brown is expected to face a jury trial in November.


Everett, They probably went to or were associated Shepherd in WV.

Everett—just a guess but maybe college?

how were these 3 all friends ? wash DC to Ashburn is at least 30 miles and Ashburn to Berkley Springs WV is 80.5 miles. That is a total span of 110.5 miles.

All my friends live within a few miles of my house.

seems odd that’s all.

He’ll be free and driving again in a matter of months, I’m sure.
