Scene of I-66 E accident cleared
1:15 p.m. Update: Traffic appears to finally be moving through the area again.
11:50 a.m. Update: The accident vehicles have been removed from the scene. Two lanes to the left remain blocked, but traffic flow is vastly improved.
11:15 a.m. Update: Traffic appears to be flowing better, although two lanes remain blocked. One of the cars involved in the accident has been moved to a wrecker and is no longer perpendicular to the road.
10:50 a.m. Update: Traffic still only gets by to the right. Police are still on the scene and the vehicles involved in the accident are still in the roadway.
10:10 a.m. Update: Traffic cameras show that vehicles are no longer being diverted at Spout Run. However, only the far right lane gets by, so expect delays.
10 a.m. Update: Some traffic is getting by. Unfortunately, those vehicles are drivers who were already near the accident scene. The scene shows several cars perpendicular to the highway, including one that appears to have crashed into the jersey barrier adjacent to the left-hand lanes. At least eight police units are on the scene.
9:42 a.m. Update: Traffic on Interstate 66 is backed up at least to George Mason Drive. Route 50 is an alternate, and traffic there appears to be relatively light.
