Sterling man arrested following high-speed chase

A Sterling man was arrested Wednesday after leading a Loudoun deputy on a chase before crashing into another vehicle and overturning.

Otto Herrarte-Molina, 57, was charged with reckless driving, hit and run and eluding. He remains held on no bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.

A deputy on patrol at about 7:34 p.m. saw Herrarte-Molina driving on the wrong side of the road on Commerce Street in Sterling, according to reports.

As the deputy initiated a traffic stop, Herrarte-Molina drove over a curb and into a parking lot. He then turned onto Enterprise Street and increased his speed as the deputy activated his emergency equipment.

Harrarte-Molina struck another vehicle and continued to flee. He then lost control as he attempted to make a turn onto East Maple Avenue.

No serious injuries were reported.
