A three-vehicle accident has been reported in the lefthand lanes of westbound Route 50 near the exit to Rosslyn-Key Bridge.

The fire department is on the scene and reporting that one of the vehicles is on fire.

Update at 6:05 p.m. — The fire has been extinguished. One patient is being evaluated by medics. As of right now, only one lane is getting by on westbound Route 50, causing delays.

    Not to sound insensitive (obviously I hope the people involved are not okay), but I can tell you for sure that a lot of people stuck in that traffic are going to miss the 7pm poll closings.

    Yes indeed. Took me 15 minutes just to cross the bridge and that is getting on by the Kennedy Center ramp. Avg speed was no joke 5mph. Diched onto GW Parkway which was a good choice.
