A pedestrian was hit and killed by a car Feb. 18 on Route 7 following a hit and run.
According to a spokesperson for the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, the victim, whose name is not being released pending identity confirmation and next of kin notification, was fleeing the scene of a hit and run crash in Sterling.
The first crash occurred around 6:15 p.m. near the intersection of Cascades Parkway and Potomac View Road. A Honda Civic hit a Pontiac Grand Prix; there were only minor injuries at that scene. The driver of the Civic kept driving southbound on Potomac View to Route 7 before two individuals got out of the car and tried to cross the highway. They crossed over the eastbound lane, but when they attempted to cross the westbound lane, the passenger of the Civic was hit by a 2005 Honda Pilot driven by a 41-year-old Ashburn man.
Witnesses have told police that the light was green when the man was hit.
The owner of the Honda Civic was not involved in the crash, and police have yet to positively identify the driver.
The LCSO is still investigating the incident.
This is an ongoing story. More information will be released as it becomes available.
