Police: Alcohol involved in deadly Loudoun Co. crash

Police believe alcohol was involved in an accident that left one person dead and caused major traffic delays Tuesday morning in Loudoun County.

It happened around 2 am on northbound Route 28 prior to the Dulles Toll Road near the Dulles International Airport. Police say the driver of a Jeep Wrangler, 26-year-old Andre M. Glenn of Sterling, Va., was traveling north on Route 28 when he hit a traffic divider.

Two female passengers were thrown from the vehicle upon impact. One of those passengers, a woman from Leesburg whose identity has not yet been released by police, was killed. The other survived, and was taken to a local hospital to be treated for serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Glenn and another male passenger remained inside the vehicle and were not seriously hurt.

Police have charged Glenn with DUI and driving on a suspended license.

All northbound lanes of Route 28 were closed for several hours. Backups stretching several miles snarled traffic until the roadway fully reopened around 7 a.m.

The crash remains under investigation.
