Loudoun County, VA- The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal crash involving a pedestrian in the Lowes Island area.

Around 3:15PM on Wednesday, November 21, 2012, Loudoun Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the area of Whitewater Drive and Levee Way for a pedestrian struck by a vehicle.

The victim, Kathleen M. Hwang, 60, of Sterling, VA, was attempting to cross Whitewater Drive when she was struck by a westbound 2001 Dodge Durango driven by an 18-year-old male from Sterling. Hwang lost her life at the scene.

According to a preliminary investigation conducted by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Crash Reconstruction Unit and information provided by independent witnesses, the pedestrian was not crossing at a crosswalk/intersection. The victim apparently did not see the oncoming SUV approaching from a curve before stepping into the roadway.

No charges are pending at this time.
