Both northbound lanes of the GW Parkway have been shut down near Reagan National Airport due to a three vehicle accident.

At least one minor injury has been reported.

A fire department unit at the scene says told dispatch that the accident is a “significant traffic hazard.” Airport and U.S. Park Police are responding to the call.

    I wonder if this occurred where someone cut a path through one of those palstic fences.

    I came upon this accident perhaps less than a minute after it happened. It didn’t seem to have anything to do with the plastic fences. It involved two private cars and one taxi, and it was right at the point where traffic from the airport merges onto GW Pkwy. The merge lane itself remained clear, and northbound traffic (including me) drove over a small grassy strip into the airport merge lane and from there back onto GW Pkwy north. Police had not yet arrived, and drivers & passengers were standing around looking dazed & bewildered, but no one looked to be seriously injured.
