Crash Leaves Woman Dead on Route 28 — A fatal single-car collision at about 2 a.m. in the northbound lanes near the Dulles Toll Road interchange left the road closed for several hours. Gabrielle Perry, a 22-year-old from Leesburg who was a passenger in the vehicle, was killed. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said the driver, 26-year-old Andre Glenn of Sterling, is facing a DUI charge.

    In Re: to the crash on RT 28.. alcohol is legally advertised encouraged drug in the country simply for profit. When will people wake up and realize this is a dangerous substance with many health consequences when abused. sad

      Sugar is another drug that’s pushed purely for profit, and slowly leading to the deaths of millions of Americans and people around the world. When will people wake up and realize sugar too is dangerous to our future and our current health, and is widely abused. Sad.

        Breathing can be hazardous to your health, as can be getting out of bed in the morning. When are people going to wake up and realize living can be hazardous to your health?

          Good sir, I’m honored that my sarcasm was so easily misunderstood! I’m also disturbed that I can parrot back nonsense so convincingly…

          • Mike M

            Well done. In Reston, the L-wordism is so thick, that the passionate and militant preposterousness greatly outweighs the sarcastic preposterousness. Forgive me.

      As for that area of 28, the ongoing construction has been very poorly managed. I almost had an accident because lanes suddenly disappear and/or shift where construction traffic is coming onto the road from the left at a makeshift entrance. It’s a disgrace to VDOT.

        Yes it really is. My husband literally almost died there too. He hit some cones to avoid crashing into a semi truck.

    • Just say no to swedish meatbal

      Swedish meatballs are another drug that’s pushed purely for profit, and slowly leading to the deaths of millions of peeps around the world. When will peeps wake up and realize swede meatballs are too dangerous to our future and our current health, and are widely abused. Sad.

    Rest in peace, Gabrielle Perry. My condolences to your family, friends and acquaintances.
