The driver of a small silver sedan struck a 15-year-old boy at the intersection of Claiborne Parkway and Portsmouth Boulevard near Stone Bridge High School in Ashburn and left the scene. The site also is near the Belmont Greene community.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has requested assistance in identifying and locating the driver of the car.
The incident occurred at about 4:15 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15 as the teen attempted to cross Claiborne from the Portsmouth side of the street (Breezyhill Drive is on the other side), according to an LCSO report. The sedan struck the teen within the crosswalk as the driver attempted to turn right onto Claiborne from Portsmouth, according to the report.
The vehicle stopped briefly, and the driver reportedly spoke with bystanders, before leaving the scene. The driver did not exit the vehicle, according to the report.
The victim was taken to a local emergency room by a family member and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
