Police are investigating a four-vehicle crash in East Falls Church.

The crash happened around 3:00 p.m. at the intersection of Lee Highway and Sycamore Street. A witness told ARLnow.com that the accident was caused when one of the drivers tried to make an ill-advised U-turn. Police on the scene tell us he’s being charged with reckless driving.

A technical rescue crew responded to the scene to help extricate a driver trapped in their vehicle after the wreck. The jaws of life were used to remove the car’s doors.

Two people were hurt and transported to Virginia Hospital Center as a result of the accident.

Investigators are taking photos of the scene. Lee Highway is currently open, but the northbound lanes of Sycamore Street are still blocked. Drivers should expect delays in the area.
