A hit and run crash Saturday (July 21) has left a Sterling woman dead and her brother facing charges of first-degree murder and felony hit and run.
According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, a woman was struck by a vehicle about 7:30 a.m. at Route 28 near its intersection with Innovation Drive.
The driver fled the scene in a vehicle.
The victim, 54-year-old Nancy Moreno of Sterling, died later at an area hospital.
The driver, Michel Moreno, 58, of Sterling, was found in Maryland by the Anne Arundel County Police Department.
Michael Moreno was charged with first-degree murder and felony hit and run. He is being held at an Anne Arundel County Adult Detention Center pending extradition to Virginia.
According to another family member, Michel Moreno was driving Nancy to the airport when an argument started. Michel made Nancy get out of the car along the side of Route 28.
Another driver stopped and offered Nancy a ride, but Michel returned so that driver left. As that witness drove away, he said he saw Michel deliberately hit Nancy with his car.
