(Updated at 12:15 p.m.) All travel lanes on eastbound I-66 in the Oakton area have reopened after a two-vehicle crash closed multiple lanes this morning, causing miles of traffic backups.
Just before 9 a.m., an armored vehicle and Ford F-350 truck collided in the eastbound lanes near Exit 62, Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said. The crash initially shut down all eastbound lanes just before the Nutley Street interchange.

Backups were 6 miles long around 10:15 a.m., according to the Virginia Department of Transportation’s traffic cameras. They were down to 2 miles by noon.
The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department tweeted that no injuries were reported, but because of a large amount of debris covering the roadway, Virginia State Police had been diverting traffic.
