When officers responded to
the scene of a single-car accident in Middleburg on New Year’s Eve, they found
an empty car.
Deputies with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office reported to the scene around 2 p.m. Dec. 31 and found a pickup truck had struck a tree. The LCSO, with the assistance of other law enforcement agencies, performed a ground and aerial search for the driver under the belief that he or she could be injured.

The suspected driver was located around 8 a.m. Jan. 1 and declined medical treatment.
Charges have not been filed, but the incident remains under investigation.
