An accident that occurred early Tuesday morning backed-up eastbound traffic to Purcellville causing commuter headaches throughout the morning.
The incident happened at approximately 7:45 A.M. when a commercial truck pulling a large commercial sized trailer flipped over and lost its load on Route 7 near Children Center Rd. The roadway was initially closed but units were able to open one lane of eastbound Route 7 shortly after the accident. Both lanes were reopened at approximately 10:15 A.M. Later in the day police closed one lane of the eastbound bypass while crews cleaned up the remainder of the accident debris.
Officer Christopher Tidmore of Leesburg Police Department said the driver was issued a summons for the incident and no one was injured.
