(Updated at 12:20 p.m.) A car crash closed all lanes of traffic on southbound I-395 this morning.
The accident occurred at just after 11:00 a.m. Virginia State Police closed off all lanes of the highway next to the Shirlington Circle to clear the scene for Arlington firefighters and paramedics.
Police diverted traffic onto the exit ramp, where cars are able to pass through and continue on I-395 past the crash.
Backups on SB I-395 stretched to the exit for Washington Blvd. The roadway has since reopened.
