Traffic heading toward I-395 on southbound Washington Boulevard is slow due to an accident.

The accident involves at least two cars and two injuries, according to scanner traffic.

Emergency activity is on the right-hand side of Washington Boulevard between Columbia Pike and the ramp to I-395.

    not sure which intersection this is since wash blvd kind of does a loop around here… but the whole area is a poorly designed mess. the merge with columbia pike and 395 south heading toward pentagon city from clarendon is especially a disaster. inexperienced drivers decide to randomly stop to complete the merge, jackholes from maryland don’t understand the concept of an alternating merge, and then you have people confused by all the signs making last minute swerves.

    lot’s of fun!

    probably one of the idiots coming up Columbia Pike and NOT seeing the YIELD sign and thinking they have the right of way.

      Or one of the A-holes who SPEEDS UP when he sees someone trying to merge in, to prevent him from getting “ahead” of him. God forbid someone try to get in front of you in the DC area.

    That stretch is great fun -if you like horror tales in which you are one of the characters.

    Don’t forget the overgrown foliage that often blocks signs and exit lanes.
