(Jan. 29, 2014) – Route 7 in Ashburn was tied up for hours after a 4-vehicle accident sent four to the hospital, including two that had to be airlifted out of the scene.
According to Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, a 1999 Toyota Camry, driven by a 20-year-old Ashburn woman, was traveling east on Route 7 when her vehicle side-swiped a 2004 Hyundai SUV driven by a 51-year-old Purcellville woman.
Both vehicles entered the center median of Route 7. The Toyota entered the westbound lanes and struck a 2003 Honda mini-van driven by a 67-year-old Burke, VA, woman. After the impact with the Honda mini-van, the Toyota continued forward into the path of a second Honda mini-van driven by a 32-year-old Sterling resident.
The driver of the Toyota, Sarah M. Wolf, and her 31-year-old passenger, were airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Wolf was listed in serious condition and her passenger was listed in critical condition as of Wednesday evening.
Two others were taken by ground to Inova Loudoun Hospital. One of the injured was later transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital for further treatment.
Wolf was charged with reckless driving. Route 7 westbound and one lane of Route 7 eastbound were closed for nearly two hours.
