Update at 9:20 a.m. — NB I-395 has partially reopened.

(Update at 8:40 a.m.) Traffic on northbound I-395 is completely blocked following a serious multi-vehicle accident near Crystal City.

Three vehicles are involved, according to Arlington County Police spokesman: a Toyota Corolla, a white van and a box truck. The white van rolled on its side, trapping its two occupants, Sternbeck said. Both have since been extricated from the vehicle and are being transported to a local hospital.

Three ambulances have been requested to the scene for two to three reported injuries. The van was said to be carrying propane tanks, but no hazmat response was required.

I-395 northbound is completely blocked at Route 110. Traffic is being diverted onto the HOV lanes of 395.

    There has to be at least one automatic toyota in the mix…

      It’s not that bad right now, I just drove down 66 west to McLean to get my work laptop, road was completely empty both ways.

  • Good heavens – seems people are still driving too fast and cutting each other off. Seems some people just won’t learn!

    • Right of Center

      Yes, they are called MD drivers

    thanks for the info. I’d heard about this on the traffic report but they didn’t give any details.

    Did a SUV flip over?

  • Just Missed It

    Let me give some details on the incident. The van was actually traveling the WRONG way on 395, towards traffic, at close to 70 mph, with cars pulling out of it’s way.

    How do I know? My dad just missed the on coming van by being one lane over this morning! We found out a little later about the accident.

    Hope no one is seriously injured!
