Middleburg crash prompts manhunt

A single-vehicle crash in Middleburg on New Years Eve spurred a manhunt that had authorities looking for the driver for 18 hours.

According to a report from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, at around 2 p.m. Jan. 31, a pick-up truck crashed into a tree near Sam Fred Rd. and Sunny Bank Lane in Middleburg. When police arrived at the scene of the wreck, the driver had already left.
