Va. woman dies after car hits pond

By Washington Post editors

A Loudoun County woman was killed in a wreck Tuesday night that sent her vehicle into a pond, authorities said Wednesday.

Post reporter Dan Morse reports on the Crime Scene blog that two cars collided on Route 7 in the Round Hill area about 9 p.m. Tuesday, according to authorities. When Loudoun sheriff's deputies arrived, three of them entered the pond and got one victim out of the submerged vehicle.

The driver was taken to a hospital, where she died. A passenger in the vehicle was ejected, officials said, and suffered minor injuries.

The driver of a second vehicle was treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, according to the sheriff's office.

Investigators say that alcohol appears to be involved in the incident.
