Sabino Vasquez-Murcia, a 29-year-old Herndon resident, was killed on Saturday when a car struck a parked vehicle he was sitting in on Saturday night. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office identified him as the victim of the crash today.

The driver, Julio Rivera, 39-year-old Herndon resident, lost control of his car and hit the parked car and a townhouse on the 700 block of Colonial Avenue in Sterling, the sheriff’s office said. The crash happened around 10:45 p.m.

Vasquez-Murcia was taken to Reston Hospital where he later passed away. The townhouse sustained minor damages and no one was injured inside, according to the report.

Rivera has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, DUI and driving on a suspended license. He is currently being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond, the sheriff’s office said.

    Julio Rivera, I wonder if he has insurance let alone legal residency in this country. Not a good hombre

    What a terrible tragedy. Two young people whose lives are ruined.

    Sounds like Sabino could have been anyone of us. RIP. But would I be surprised if our newcomers are bumping into each other? The numbers are high. As I have said, you cannot swing a dead cat in Herndon without striking one.

    I wonder if he has insurance or even the right to legally be in the United States. I’m sure he was here with love in his heart, because who here hasn’t driven drunk on a suspended license

    A little ironic that two guys from Herndon were involved in this debacle in Sterling…. Why was the guy just “sitting” in his car while the other guy just happened to run into him while he was on his way to crash into the townhouse… Thinking that there is a little more to this story.
