Sterling teen injured after high-speed chase

A 16-year-old Sterling boy was injured Saturday after leading deputies on a high-speed chase down Route 7.

The incident began about 5:42 a.m. when a Loudoun County deputy on patrol saw an erratic driver on Route 7 near Davenport Drive. The deputy initiated a traffic stop, but the driver immediately took off.

The teen continued to speed west down Route 7 before eventually turning on to Russell Branch Parkway and then Ashburn Village Boulevard.

At certain points during the pursuit, deputies said the vehicle traveled on roads in the opposite lanes and caused damage to stationary objects, including several street signs.

The vehicle eventually traveled on Ashburn Village Boulevard toward Riverside Parkway. The driver lost control of the vehicle in the area of Helix Drive and crashed.

The driver, who did not have a driver's license, was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. He was later taken to the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center. Several juvenile petitions are pending against him.


Great job LCSO.. Dont let Loudoun become one of these places criminals can run and get away.

If they run, you guys chase them and arrest them - period. They wont run next time.

That’s too bad. He took what was a relatively minor citation for driving without a license and likely racked up at least one felony. But the weird time of the event, 5:42 a.m. on a Saturday, makes me think there was more involved.
