Motorcycle Deputies Remain Hospitalized After Crash

A local woman took road-rage to a new level when she slashed the face of an unsuspecting motorist and then chased her all the way to the police station -- all with her four-year-old daughter in the car.

Two Loudoun County Sheriff Deputies remain hospitalized after an accident Saturday on Rt. 671.

Deputy First Class Brian Kleptach and Sr. Deputy Tom P. Alpy were returning from an assignment escorting a motorcycle charity poker run.

Shortly before noon, Kleptach and Alpy came across someone waving a boat oar on the shoulder of the intersection at Butts Lane. The person was trying to direct traffic into a water tubing business.

Suddenly, a car coming from the opposite direction turned in front of the deputies. Dep. Kleptach collided with the car and was thrown from his motorcycle. Sr. Dep. Alpy steered to avoid the car, but was also thrown from his motorcycle.

Both deputies were wearing eye protection and helmets. They were airlifted to a local hospital and are in stable condition. 

The crash remains under investigation.
