A 12-year-old boy is recovering from serious injuries during a Tuesday night wreck in Purcellville, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. Two Leesburg teens, including the driver, were also injured in the wreck.
According to deputies, the 1999 Toyota Corolla crossed over the double yellow lines and left the roadway at around 7:05 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Lincoln Road and Forest Mills Road. The car then re-entered the roadway and struck a mailbox on the shoulder.
"The driver, a 17-year-old female from Leesburg, overcorrected and struck two trees," according to a Sheriff's Office release. "The driver and front seat passenger, a 16-year-old from Leesburg, were taken to the Cornwall Campus of Inova Loudoun Hospital."
The 12-year-old boy, a rear passenger, was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Both the driver and front seat passenger were released from the hospital.
