Loudoun County, VA – An Ashburn woman lost her life Friday afternoon and four passengers in her vehicle were seriously injured after a two vehicle crash on Evergreen Mills Road near Leesburg.

Around 4:50 p.m., the driver of a 2000 Thomas bus converted into a food truck was traveling east on Watson Road when they ran a stop sign and struck a 2014 Audi Station wagon traveling northbound on Evergreen Mills Road. The driver of the bus and two juvenile passengers were taken to the StoneSprings Hospital Center emergency room for treatment of minor injuries. They have since been released. 

The driver of the Audi, Erin T. Kaplan, 39, lost her life at the scene. An adult passenger and three juvenile passengers were airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital. All four remain hospitalized and one of the juveniles is in critical condition.

The crash remains under investigation and charges are pending after review by the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney.
