Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office investigators have charged a Clifton man with DUI following a head-on crash on Rt. 7 on Thursday afternoon.
At approximately 4 p.m. deputies were called to a two vehicle crash on Rt. 7 between Rt. 9 and Rt. 704 near Hamilton.
The preliminary investigation determined the driver of a 2002 Volkswagen Passat was traveling westbound on Rt. 7 when the vehicle left the roadway and traveled across the median and a 1999 Ford van in the eastbound lanes.
The driver of the Volkswagen, Marcus R. Delaney, 25, of Clifton, was airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital for treatment of injuries described as serious but non-life-threatening. Delaney also was issued a summons at the hospital for DUI—second offense in five years. He remained hospitalized on Friday.
The driver of the Ford sustained minor injuries and was taken to the Cornwall Campus of Inova Loudoun Hospital where he was later released. A passenger in the Volkswagen sustained minor injuries and was taken to the Lansdowne Campus of Inova Loudoun Hospital where he was later released.
