(Updated at 9:50 p.m.) Arlington County police and firefighters responded to a serious multi-vehicle crash on S. Glebe Road Tuesday night.
The crash happened just before 7:45 p.m. near the intersection of Glebe and 19th Street S. Police on scene reported that four people were injured, including an 8-year-old girl who was initially trapped in one of the vehicles.
“A vehicle was on S. Glebe Road driving at a high rate of speed when it crossed into oncoming traffic, striking two vehicles,” said ACPD spokeswoman Ashley Savage.
Three of the injured individuals are being transported to the trauma center at Inova Fairfax Hospital, according to scanner traffic.
“All three occupants of one vehicle were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries,” Savage said. “An 8-year-old girl suffered critical injuries. Occupants of the second vehicle were treated by medics on scene but refused transport.”
One person has been taken into custody by officers on reported suspicion of DUI, according to scanner traffic.
“The driver of the striking vehicle is expected to face charges,” said Savage. “Those charges have not been determined at this time.”
There were three men in the striking vehicle, according to Savage. One was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, for a total of four who were hospitalized.
The crash involved a Chevrolet Camero, a Land Rover SUV and a Nissan Leaf electric vehicle.
Both directions of Glebe Road were closed at the crash scene. The road was expected to remain closed while the cars are removed, debris is cleared and a police investigation is conducted.
