    A portion of Route 7 in Sterling was closed for most of the day March 17 due to a two-vehicle crash that brought down utility lines.

    According to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office the driver of a westbound 2002 Mini Cooper lost control of their vehicle in the area of Route 7 and the southbound exit for Route 28 about 11 a.m.

    The vehicle struck a 2006 Sterling box truck. The truck lost control and went off the roadway and struck a utility pole.
    Neither driver was injured.

    The driver of the Mini Cooper, Kathryn Freeman, 22, of Middleburg, was charged with reckless driving. The roadway was closed for nearly seven hours as utility crews repaired the downed lines.
