Investigators hope witnesses who saw the two-vehicle accident along Braddock Road near Aldie Monday evening come forward to help determine what happened.
Around 7:15 p.m. April 18, as Stone Ridge resident Christopher J. Schemmel, 18, drove eastbound on Braddock Road, his 2006 Infiniti sedan turned in front of a westbound 2002 Ford Escape. The 22-year-old Escape driver, Purcellville resident Donald M. Legg, was airlifted to INOVA Fairfax Hospital. He is expected to fully recover.
During the course of the crash investigation it was determined that Legg was driving under the influence of some kind of drug or drugs. Deputies charged him with DUI-D and failure to wear a seatbelt.
Schemmel was treated for non-life threatening injuries at Fair Oaks Hospital and released.
The crash remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s Crash Reconstruction Unit. Witnesses to the crash who have not talked directly with a deputy are asked to contact DFC S. Allen at 703-737-8308.
