    2 Men Killed in Loudoun County High-Speed Crash

    Two young men are dead after a fiery crash in Loudoun County, Virginia, that was so destructive it left some car debris hanging in a tree.

    Loundoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman said one of his deputies clocked a BMW on radar going 91 mph on Loudoun County Parkway. The BMW then ran a red light and turned as the deputy got behind the car, Chapman said.

    A short time later, Chapman said the deputy discovered the car had crashed into a tree near Evergreen Mills Road and Stone Springs Boulevard.

    "He had lost sight of the vehicle, and as he went over the hill on Evergreen Mills Road and came down, he saw that the vehicle had already crashed, so there was never a pursuit there," Chapman said.

    The deputy pulled the driver, David G. Brown, 25, of Ashburn, from the car as the vehicle caught fire and became engulfed in flames, police said. Two men inside the car died, police said. One of the victims was identified as Kyle W. Youngblood, 29, of Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.

    Resident Robin Tarrasky lives nearby and said the BMW involved in the crash was unrecognizable.

    "It was something you could hang on a key chain. It had been so crunched up and wrapped around that tree," Tarrasky said.

    Brown was charged with reckless driving and will likely face more charges, Chapman said.
