LEESBURG, Va. - A Harpers Ferry, W.Va., woman was killed Saturday in a single-vehicle crash in Loudoun County, Va., according to a press release from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Department.

Ana Daysi Ochoa, 21, died at the scene of the crash along the Loudoun County Parkway, police said.

The accident occurred about 3:55 a.m. when Ana Maria Maribel Collantes of Ashburn, Va., lost control of a northbound 1988 Lincoln Navigator just south of Va. 7, police said.

The vehicle went into a median, but was "corrected back onto the road," police said. The vehicle then slid sideways and rolled several times, police said.

Neither Collantes nor Ochoa were wearing seat belts, and both were thrown from the vehicle, police said.

Collantes was taken to INOVA Fairfax Hospital with severe injuries, police said.

The crash remains under investigation.

Ochoa was born Jan. 14, 1986, in El Salvador, and was the daughter of Aurelio F. Bello and Ana Miriam Ochoa of Harpers Ferry.


She was a packer and driver for JK Moving in Sterling, Va.
