    South Riding man charged with DUID; passenger in critical condition

    A South Riding man was charged Thursday with driving under the influence of drugs after he crashed his BMW, seriously injuring one of his three passengers.

    Dilgeer Singh, 18, was charged with DUID, according to Loudoun County Sheriff's Office reports.

    Reports said Singh was speeding north on Loudoun County Parkway about 10:49 a.m. when he hit a 2004 Toyota Sienna that was attempting to turn east onto Center Street.

    The Toyota Sienna overturned, trapping its driver inside the vehicle. Singh was also trapped inside the BMW.

    The BMW's front seat passenger was flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital with life-threatening injuries and was in critical condition as of Friday morning.

    The three other occupants of the BMW and the driver of the Toyota Sienna were taken by ambulance to Inova Fairfax hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A preliminary investigation determined Singh was driving well above the posted speed limit when he hit the Toyota Sienna driven by a South Riding man.

    The driver, front seat passenger and a rear passenger of the BMW were all not to be wearing seatbelts at the time of the collision.

    The scene was processed by investigators from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Crash Reconstruction Unit. The roadway was closed for approximately four hours for the investigation.

    Any witnesses to the crash, who have not already spoken to law enforcement, are asked to contact Investigator R. Beach at 703-777- 1021.

    Adult or Teenager/Juvenile is such a delicate line.  Yes, he’s 18 technically an adult, can smoke, go to war and pretty much do anything but buy and drink alcohol legally.  But on the other hand, this KID could be a rising senior in HS, still hang out with all HS kids, and very might well be very juvenile in mental maturity.  He is still probably living at home and fully dependent on his parents like a teenager. 
    I hesitate calling anybody under 22 an adult,as their brains and decisions are very very juvenile a lot of the time. 
    Sucks he got himself into this situation and it affected so many others. I hope they all recover and he learns a lot from this situation.  Hopefully it affects his life but doesn’t screw everything in front of him up along the way.


    The BMW could have been 10 years old plus.  who knows. The article only states the year of the Toyota.


    Editor - what is meant by this sentence ?
    “The driver, front seat passenger and a rear passenger of the BMW were all not to be wearing seatbelts at the time of the collision.”

    They were “thought to be wearing”, or “not thought to be wearing” ???

    Who gives their kid a BMW ?  Oh ya, I forgot what county I lived in for a second.


    Good for calling Mr. Singh a man, and not a “teenager.”


    “Hey mom & dad, thanks for the BMW.  I’m going to need a high priced lawyer now.”
