From Loudoun Sheriff:

Loudoun County, VA: Around 2:45 a.m. on Wednesday, June 15, 2011 a Loudoun County Sheriff’s Deputy initiated a traffic stop on a speeding vehicle traveling westbound on Route 9 near the Town of Hillsboro.  
  
The deputy, who was traveling eastbound, activated his emergency equipment. At this time the suspect vehicle began to accelerate and the deputy marked in pursuit. Due to the direction of travel of the suspect vehicle and the proximity of the pursuit to West Virginia, dispatchers from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Communications Center notified the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. As the suspect vehicle crossed into West Virginia the deputy terminated the pursuit.   
  
The deputy lost sight of the vehicle but continued into West Virginia where, after approximately one mile, he discovered the suspect vehicle was involved in a three vehicle crash.  
  
The crash is being investigated by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.   
  
The suspect, who was driving a stolen vehicle and determined to be wanted out of Arlington County on a property crime charge, was airlifted to INOVA Fairfax Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Three other patients were airlifted from the scene and two others were transported to a local hospital.   
  
Further charges out of Loudoun County are pending on the driver.   
  
Further information will be released as it becomes available.
