UPDATE : The Leesburg Police Department is still investigating the car crash on the Route 7 Bypass that is located between the Greenway (Rt. 267) and the South King Street exits. Traffic is expected to be affected severely for the next several hours. We are asking citizens to avoid the area and use alternate routes. As of 3:31 PM; • Route 15 northbound (South King Street) cannot exit onto the Route 7 bypass eastbound. • Eastbound traffic on the Route 7 Bypass is being diverted onto South King Street to avoid the crash investigation area. • The Route 7 Bypass does have one lane of traffic open in the area of the crash and is moving slowly.
One fatality reported, so this could be a long investigation.
