Round Hill Man Charged With Striking Purcellville PD Cruiser

© Leesburg Today - 09/28/2015

A Purcellville Police officer escaped injury in a hit-and-run crash early Sunday morning, but a Round Hill man did not escape arrest.

The crash happened at 12:15 a.m. Sept. 27 on the shoulder of the westbound lanes of the Rt. 7 bypass. An officer was in his cruiser writing a summons during a routine traffic stop when a passing jeep hit the car in the front quarter panel. The jeep did not stop.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office and Virginia State Police were alerted and after a short search a deputy found the jeep at a Buckington Court residence in Round Hill.

Norris J. Gaskins was located at the home. Trooper T.R. Yowell charged him with felony hit and run and driving under the influence. Gaskins was transported to the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center and placed on a $3,000 bond.
