Purcellville man struck by vehicle during traffic stop

A Purcellville man was seriously injured Friday after he was struck by a vehicle during a traffic stop on Charles Town Pike.

A deputy had stopped the driver of a Pontiac G5 about 7:15 p.m. when the driver turned into a private driveway in the 35400 block of Charles Town Pike, according to Loudoun County Sheriff's Office reports.

Two occupants of the vehicle got out while the deputy was conducting the traffic stop. At that time, the driver of a 2013 Ford Focus was traveling west when she rounded the curve and came upon stopped traffic.

To avoid a collision, she veered onto the shoulder and struck the stationary Pontiac.

The chain reaction sent the Pontiac into one of the occupants of the stopped vehicle. The victim suffered serious injuries and was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital where he was listed in stable condition.

The driver of the Ford was taken to the Cornwall Campus of Inova Loudoun Hospital where she was treated for minor injuries. She was charged with reckless driving.
