A woman is dead after an early Tuesday morning collision in Ashburn, Virginia.

First responders were dispatched to Ashburn Village Boulevard and Regency Drive after a driver struck Perveen Bilal Bin Butt, 61, shortly after 5 a.m., Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman told WTOP. He called the incident “awful.”

Officials said she was struck in the eastbound lanes of Waxpool Road while crossing, and was not in a crosswalk.

Chapman said they don’t know where the woman was walking to. “And we do know that she was last seen by her family the previous evening,” he added.

“We want everybody to be safe out there. Certainly, that time of the morning, it’s dark, people are just getting ready to go to work, you just have to be very, very careful,” he continued.

The driver involved in the crash remained at the scene and called 911.

Alcohol, drugs, cellphone use and speed are not factors in the crash.
