Virginia State Police | Fatal Crash in Ashburn Aug. 14, 2019

Virginia State Police is investigating a fatal crash in Ashburn on Aug. 14.

Virginia State Police authorities are seeking witnesses to last week's fatal crash in Brambleton, which claimed the life of a 34-year-old Aldie mother and injured her four-year-old daughter.

Several witnesses have already come forward, but VSP officials said they would like to hear from anyone else who may have seen the crash take place or saw the 2012 Volkswagen CC on Belmont Ridge Road prior to the collision.

Virginia Trooper A.N. Patsios is investigating the two-vehicle crash that occurred on Aug. 14 at 7:20 a.m. on Belmont Ridge Road near Legacy Park Drive, according to officials.

A dark gray, four-door 2012 Volkswagen CC was traveling south on Belmont Ridge Road when it ran off the left side of the road, went over the curb, through the median and into the northbound lanes of Belmont Ridge Road, according to an incident report. The Volkswagen struck head-on a northbound 2013 Subaru.

The driver of the Subaru, 34-year-old Ammie Cho, died at the scene. Her daughter was transported to Inova Loudoun Hospital for treatment of serious, non-life threatening injuries. The child was secured in a safety seat.

The driver of the Volkswagen, an 18-year-old male from Ashburn, was transported to Reston Hospital Center for treatment of serious, non-life threatening injuries.

Charges are pending as the investigation remains ongoing.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Virginia State Police Leesburg Office at 703-771-2533 or email at

We’ll find eventually will find out more when it fits the political agenda. He’s probably a minority with a history of “challenges” and played football for Heritage HS. Just sayin.


You sound like you know him personally?

Today's cars are made out of "gutter and down spout" material What used to be a "Finder Bender" that cost 250 to 3 hundred to fix, now tears up the entire front end and costs 6 to 8 thousand or more.


I can't remember the speed limit on that road, but you can watch multiple IIHS crash tests on YouTube, particularly their 40 MPH overlap crashes, and you'll see that this kind of damage is definitely possible at that speed.

People get way too comfortable driving and fail to appreciate the amount of energy (and thus, mortal danger) generated by a car going "just" 40 MPH.


People have to quit texting while driving or be distracted with their phones and just focus on the road!!!!

More Cowbell

With that kind of damage, 1 or both cars were traveling at high speeds.


What is the name of the 18 year old driver?


Why has the name of the 18 year old drive never been mentioned?


I wonder if texting was the issue? terrible tragedy for all....
