Deputies were called to the scene at Algonkian Parkway and
Rutherford Circle in Sterling close to midnight.
A witness told officials male driver exited the vehicle andwalked away from the scene towards a footpath.
The driver was later located and identified as Marc A. Dixon, 31, of Reston.
Dixon was arrested and charged with misdemeanor hit and run and Felony DUI. Dixon has been charged with multiple DUI in the last five years, according to LCSO. He is being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond.
In 2014, Dixon was arrested for driving his car backwards down Rugby Road in Fairfax. During that arrest, Dixon provided false information as well as kicked the door and window of the police vehicle he was in, Fairfax County Police said.
In that incident, Dixon was charged with DUI (fourth offense), refusing breath test, fraudulent information to police, destruction of county property, driving while suspended (DUI related) and improper backing on the highway.
