State Police Investigating Fatal Dulles Greenway Crash

The Virginia State Police is investigating a fatal crash that occurred early Sunday morning on the Dulles Greenway.

According to the report, the crash happened at 1:19 a.m. Oct. 17. A westbound 2018 Hyundai Sonata ran off the road at the Rt. 772/Ashburn Village Boulevard exit. It struck a crash attenuator and continued through the grass, along a steep embankment, and through thick landscaping before striking a Washington Metro Power Transfer building. The vehicle was not visible from the highway and was not discovered until just after 8 a.m.

The adult female driver was found dead at the scene.

    It’s terrible to read about another traffic fatality in Loudoun County. Perhaps an audit of safety conditions on Dulles Greenway is warranted. Four years ago, after the horrifying death of Erin Kaplan & several others on Evergreen Mills Road, improvements commenced on that deathtrap. I hope officials take similar action to help ensure another fatality doesn’t occur on Dulles Greenway. (I hate to say it. But perhaps an adjusted speed limit is necessary.) My sincere sympathy & prayers go out to the family & loved ones of the deceased individual.
