Dulles Greenway Accident Cleared and Traffic is Moving Again

This morning's incident on the Dulles Greenway near the intersection with Shreve Mill Road has now been cleared and traffic is running as is normal. Kudos to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, Loudoun County Fire and Rescue HazMat crews and other public safety resonders for their efforts in responding to the accident, which spilled some of its 7,500 gallons of diesel fuel after the crash.
The Washington Post reports that the driver of the truck, "24-year-old Richard Clem, was charged with reckless driving. Police said Clem was from Middletown, Va., off Interstate 81 near the intersection of Interstate 66. Police said fatigue was a factor in the accident. Clem was taken by ambulance to Lansdowne Hospital in Leesburg for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening."
