  • Final seconds dissected in Lansdowne stroller death case

    Lawyers for the man charged with involuntary manslaughter in the 2016 death of an infant argued in court that it was forensically and "physically impossible" for the Leesburg driver to have done anything on his smartphone that could have caused the boy's death. In a two-hour motions hearing in Loudoun County Circuit Court on Wednesday, defense attorney Steven Webster said although a forensic report indicated his client's messaging app was "active" at the time of the crash, it was active for such an infinitesimal period of time that it could not have contributed to the Aug. 31 crash.
