Traffic snarled on Yates Ford Road this morning — incidents in two places

Two incidents snarled commuters on Yates Ford Road this morning.

The first was a crash at Esther Court.

From Prince William police:

“…occurred at Ethel Ct at 6:55AM. It was a three-vehicle accident. One of the drivers was cited for following too closely.”

The second was in Fairfax County.

From Fairfax County police:

“Around 9:11 hours this morning, Oct 17 in the area of Old Yates Ford and Kincheloe Rd, there was an 18 wheeler attempting to turn around causing traffic backup.”

@FixRoute28 sent us the featured image for this post showing the backup on Google Maps.

We’ll be talking about Yates Ford and Davis Ford Roads, and the regular traffic backups commuters face on this popular road linking Fairfax and Prince William counties, at our town hall event on Thursday.

If you drive this route on a regular basis, you should attend this free event.

    My husband sat and sat and sat on Davis Ford just trying to get to Yates Ford for well over 1.5 hours waiting for these to clear without even knowing what happened to snarl so badly. Its bad every single day but this was particularly bad. So many people were late to work. Don’t understand why it takes so very long to get vehicles off the road from being disable or accident.
