(Updated at 9:15 a.m.) Southbound Route 110 at Boundary Channel Drive, near the Pentagon, is currently closed due to a crash.
The crash involved two dump trucks, according to initial reports, which were echoed by a tipster who works at the Pentagon.
“Apparently a dump truck ran smack into the rear of another dump truck,” he said. “The front end of the truck was severely damaged.”
Later in the morning the Arlington County Fire Department confirmed that a pair of dump trucks were involved, noting that firefighters remain on scene to deal with fluid leaks. Two minor injuries were reported.
