Hi all,

One of my staff members just called to see if anything is happening currently at IAD. She is on the Dulles Toll Road enroute and have hit a complete stop. There was approx 40 emergency vehicles going by them when she called.

I'm thinking an accident on the Toll Road but incase it's something to do with the terminal, I thought I would ask if anyone had any info. Apparantly the NBC News 4 chopper went overhead in the direction of the apt.

Thanks for any info.

Cheers,
Aussieindc

WTOP reports just "police activity" on Rt. 28 and the toll road. Probably nothing to do with the airport.


Maggs swings, it's a drive deep to left! The Tigers are going to the World Series!!!

Thanks Stretch 8, I figured as much but thought that 40 odd emergency vehicles was a little excessive for a road accident or something.

Appreciate it.

Thats interesting! My wife and I drove down the toll road about an hour and a half ago and there were 15-20 cops sitting standby for something!!! In addition to that, About 20 minutes ago I noticed 4 Police cruisers sitting on the bridge at Ox Road/28, with lights on, but just parked and waiting for something. They are gone now.

So, was this some huge VIP event? What in the world was going on????

Quoting IADPax (Reply 4):
Pres. Bush is speaking near IAD.

This makes sense, but why would a news chopper be en-route just for Prez Bush to be speaking and if WTOP radio are advising police activity???

IADPax, do you know where the Prez was speaking exactly?
