STERLING, Va. (AP) - Police say an unlicensed 15-year-old driver was behind the wheel in a fatal car accident over the weekend in Loudoun County.

On Monday police identified the driver as 15-year-old Wilberto Pitre (PEA’-tree) of Aldie.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office says the wreck occurred early Sunday when a deputy saw Pitre driving with his lights off. Police say when the deputy tried to stop him, he sped away.

The deputy began a chase in his patrol car but lost sight of him until the officer came upon the wreck. Police say Pitre crashed into a parked car and was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger was taken to a hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Police said Pitre had neither a driver’s license nor a learner’s permit.
