Va. deputy released from hospital
One of the two Loudoun County sheriff's deputies injured Saturday when their motorcycles were cut off by a car has been released from the hospital, officials said. The other remained hospitalized Monday morning.
Senior Deputy Tom Alpy was released from the hospital on Sunday, according to Loudoun County sheriff's spokesman Kraig Troxell. Deputy First Class Brian Kleptach was being treated at Inova Fairfax Hospital.
The deputies, part of the department's motorcycle unit, were traveling south on Harpers Ferry Road (Route 671) on their way home from serving as an escort for a motorcycle charity poker run when the accident occurred, officials said.
They said a vehicle heading north attempted to turn left into the Butts Tubes parking lot in front of the deputies. Kleptach struck the car and was ejected; Alpy was able to avoid the car but was thrown from his motorcycle.
Sheriff's officials said an investigation showed that an employee of Butts Tubes had been using a boat oar to flag cars into the parking lot. That person was not wearing a safety vest. The driver, Sarah C. Webb, 27, of Arlington, pulled into the parking lot in front to the motorcycles, authorities said.
Webb and two passengers were treated at the scene.
Troxell said the Loudoun Commonwealth's Attorney's Office is reviewing the case.
