Victim in Fatal Rt. 7 Crash Identified as PA Man

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate the circumstances of Tuesday’s fatal crash on Rt. 7 west of Leesburg.

So far, investigators have determined that the victim, Steven Snead, 44, of Pennsylvania, was pulled over on the right shoulder of the road just east of the Rt. 9 interchange. An eastbound Jeep Wrangler struck the parked Jeep Grand Cherokee from behind.

Snead was thrown from his vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Wrangler was taken to Inova Loudoun Hospital for treatment of injuries described as non-life-threatening.

Members of the Sheriff’s Office Crash Reconstruction Unit will review their findings with the Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office to determine whether charges will be filed in the case.
