Waxpool Road and Loudoun County Parkway Accident Now Clear

The Washington Post reports that a motorist who might have had a medical emergency caused an eight-car crash in Loudoun County this morning, leaving the driver seriously injured.

"The driver of a Chevrolet Malibu was traveling south on Loudoun County Parkway in the Ashburn area when he lost control of the car. He drove over a median into the parkway's oncoming lanes and then crossed over another median onto Waxpool Road, colliding with four vehicles, according to Loudoun County Sheriff's Office spokesman Kraig Troxell. Four more vehicles also crashed as a result, Troxell said."

The Post adds that "the driver was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital, and the extent of his injuries was not immediately known. No one besides the driver was seriously hurt, Troxell said. Waxpool Road was temporarily closed to clear the scene."

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office now reports that the eight vehicle crash at Waxpool Road and Loudoun County Parkway is now cleared and that traffic is moving as normal.  
However, the Sheriff's Office continues to respond to fallen trees and traffic signal malfunctions in the county. Currently a tree is blocking Lime Kiln Road approximately four miles up the roadway from Route 15. And the traffic signal at the intersection of Jefferson Pike and Harper's Ferry Road is currently out.

Please remember an intersection where the traffic signals are off due to power failure must be treated as a four-way stop.
