Update at 4:45 p.m. — All lanes have reopened, according to WTOP.

The inbound (northbound) HOV lanes of I-395 are blocked over the Potomac River due to an accident.

The accident reportedly involves at least one overturned vehicle and two injuries. Arlington firefighters and medics are on the scene, though the accident is closer to the D.C. side of the river.

HOV traffic is at a standstill approaching the 14th Street Bridge. Drivers should use the mainline of I-395 as an alternative, avoiding the HOV lanes.

    Technically, the entire bridge is in DC, as DC owns up to the shore on the VA side.

      Blah blah blah. Mutual aide agreements mean we help each other.

    Anyone know anything more about the Dulles Connector crash this morning? It looked horrific.

    That person flipped was actually my brother. He’s ok now though.

    Trevon, hi, my name is Casey and my girlfriends and I were actually in the car accident as well! The taxi that hit ur brother cut over in front of us and drove us over into the guard wall. We ended us straddling the wall which was a God send! We all prayed for ur brother as we were waiting for the ems to arrive! I’m so glad to know he is ok!! Wish him the best in his recovery!!!
