A teen suffered serious injuries when pieces of a fence came through the windshield during a car wreck Thursday afternoon near Leesburg, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
Investigators are looking for witnesses to the incident after differing descriptions of the reason for the crash.
At 4:33 p.m. Thursday, deputies responded to the intersection of Evergreen Mills Road and Shreve Mill Road. A 2005 Toyota Corolla went off the right side of the road and struck a fence, according to a Sheriff's Office release.
Two boards of the fence went through the windshield, striking the teen passenger. He was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where he was treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Toyota, a 32-year-old male, received minor injuries.
The driver said a car pulled out in front of him from Shreve Mills Road, causing him to run off road to avoid hitting the vehicle. The driver of the second car stayed at the scene and told police they had driven well down the road when they saw the Toyota lose control, according to the LCSO.
Investigators know there was at least one witness who left the scene before police arrived. Witnesses to the crash can contact Senior Deputy J. Kenna at 703-771-5798 ext.1873
