Loudoun deputy, five others injured in early morning crash
The 6:39 a.m. crash occurred on the Route 7 bypass at South King Street in Leesburg.
According to Loudoun County Sheriff's Office reports, the 24-year-old Norfolk man, driving a 2002 Toyota Sequoia, fell asleep and drove into the median.
As it traveled down the median the vehicle struck an embankment, which acted as a ramp.
The Toyota then went airborne and landed on top of the hood of a sheriff's cruiser, which was in the crossover on the Route 7 bypass, west of South King Street.
The deputy was taken to the Landsdowne Campus of Inova Loudoun Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.
The driver of the Toyota and four passengers were all treated for minor injuries at the scene.
