Outer loop lanes reopen at I-66

6:06 P.M. UPDATE:

Three lanes have reopened on the outer loop of the Beltway at I-66. The right lane remains blocked, and serious delays remain approaching this spot. 

The Virginia State Police report that a three-vehicle crash occurred in this area and caused one minor injury. 

ORIGINAL POST:

A crash has shut down the outer loop of the Beltway at I-66. There are already major delays on the outer loop leading up to this location as well as on I-66. 

We will update this post as we get more information, but for now drivers should seek alternate routes and expect massive problems to spread through that area.
