One of the drivers was charged with reckless driving in a wreck that closed a busy stretch of Route 7 for seven hours Monday. Details were released by the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
Officers were called to the scene just before 11 a.m. after the driver of a 2002 Mini Cooper lost control of her vehicle near the exit for Route 28. The car struck a 2006 Sterling box truck and the truck hit a utility pole.
The collision downed power lines, closing the busy commuter route to traffic in both directions until late in the afternoon. Eastbound Route 7 was closed at Route 28 and westbound Route 7 was closed at Countryside Road.
No injuries were reported. The 22-year-old driver of the Mini Cooper was charged with reckless driving.
