Update: Man killed in car crash in Ashburn, speed a factor

A driver was killed in Ashburn May 14 in a single-car crash.

According to a report from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to Old Ryan Road, just west of Croson Lane, at 6 a.m. with reports of a wreck. A 2004 Hyundai Elantra had crashed into an utility pole, splitting the pole in half.

The car's lone occupant, August Krier, 20, of Herndon was pronounced dead at the scene.

There were no witnesses to the crash, but police now believe the wreck occurred around 1:40 a.m. There are currently no indications Krier was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but a toxicology report is pending.

Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.


The current sheriff has a total lack of understanding when it comes to traffic enforcement and its value in terms of public safety.  Seems like one citizen a month is killed via pedestrian struck in Loudoun recently.  Where is Chapman’s comprehensive traffic plan?  Right, he doesn’t have one.

Dear young men with want to be sports cars, here is a prime example why you should not race down the road behind my home.
