    Pedestrian killed on Gloucester in Ashburn

    An Ashburn man was killed Thursday after he was hit by a car.

    Loudoun County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the intersection of Gloucester Parkway and Forest Farm Lane in Ashburn at around 9:08 p.m. after receiving calls that a pedestrian had been hit by a car.

    Hitenda Laxman Dhingani, 47, was hit by a 2008 Lexus SUV driven by a 61-year-old Leesburg woman. The woman was driving her car westbound when she hit Dhingani in the right lane.

    Dhingani was initially taken to Inova Loudoun Hospital in Lansdowne, but was later airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where he died of his injuries.

    The incident is still under investigation, but speed and alcohol are not believed to be factors.

    @Everett, perhaps you should leave earlier if you’re late for work by only 5 minutes on 3 occasions.

    I elect Everett as new ambassador for raising money for anyone killed in Ashburn.


    I think Everett’s larger point is that people think they’re doing something really noble when they sign a Facebook petition (for really random things like “Stop Domestic Violence!”) or tie a pair of running shoes around a pole.  But in reality, that kind of action is hollow—it’s just to make you feel good while ignoring the fact that it makes absolutely no difference to the people involved or in any way changes the way things are.  It’s like the people who put crosses and teddy bears on the side of the highway.  All you’re doing is creating a distraction for drivers—you’re not doing anything to help the family of the person you’re trying to honor.


    It’s a real shame that someone’s death made you 5 minutes late to work on 3 occasions!


    Such is the twisted society we live in Everett. I suppose that Mr. Dhingani needs to be linked to some activity that everybody cares about, before they unload their support. If he had Jogger or Bicyclist attached to his activities, they might as well shut down the schools in Ashburn for a day or mourning. But somebody who is just out for a walk doesn’t appear to have any support in the community.

    One day, one of these bicyclist is going to get killed when they “ignore” the stop signs on the W&OD; trail crossings at Belmont Ridge Rd, Ashburn Rd, and other locations. Their arrogance is repulsive. I really wish LCSO would monitor those trail crossings and start issuing citations to the numerous cyclists who blow through stop signs.


    How come when that 30 something year old single mom got hit by the car and died in Ashburn they raised all this money for her and all kinds of other community support. The news even made channel 7. I am referring to that jogger a few months ago and someone came up with the lame idea to put shoes on the todem pole. All it did was slow traffic down so everyone can stare and I was late to work 5 minutes on 3 occasions.

    This person in the article did not receive such support and media attention. so sad…this is a person too.
