Delays on 1-95 Northbound Due to Glass Accident

Traffic is backed up on northbound I-95 in Prince William County this morning because of a significant amount of broken glass on the highway -- apparently caused when several large panes of glass fell from a truck and shattered near the intersection with Route 234, authorities said.

Highway department crews were sweeping up the glass shortly before 7 a.m., and three of the four lanes had been reopened to traffic, but there were long backups on I-95. Traffic was also jammed on Route 234, which intersects with I-95 just before the site of the incident.

Reports now say the glass has been removed, but road congestion continues.

Off topic but I am just wondering why you have not posted about VRE's TWO catastrophic failures yesterday, which affected hundreds of people??
