A driver died Tuesday night in a wreck while attempting to pass another vehicle on a Purcellville road, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.
The man, whose name has not been released, was traveling in a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta, heading north in the 19000 block of Silcott Springs Road around 9:42 p.m.
He attempted to pass a 2010 Toyota Tundra and lost control of the Jetta while attempting to pass, with the car eventually striking a fence and a tree. The man died at the scene, LCSO officials said.
The crash remains under investigation.
