Photos: Makeshift Memorial at Rosslyn Crash Site

A makeshift memorial was set up this week at the site of a fatal crash in Rosslyn.

Sami Ullah, a 21-year-old Leesburg resident, died Sunday when the BMW M5 he was driving hit a curb and flipped several times after speeding across the Key Bridge at up to 90 miles per hour. The car came to rest on its roof, in the bushes in front of the Key Bridge Marriott in Rosslyn.

Two passengers, ages 21 and 22 and both also from Leesburg, were seriously injured in the wreck.

A memorial was set up at the site, featuring dozens of flowers and a poster showing photos of Ullah with friends and family.

“Rest in paradise,” the poster said. Remnants from the crash and the emergency response — including muddy tire tracks, broken glass, a paramedic’s latex glove and the destroyed section of bushes — could still be seen at the site.

Ullah was preparing to graduate from Virginia Tech and pursue a Master’s degree in business, WJLA reported.

Arlington County police are still investigating the circumstances leading to the crash.
