Va. police: 6 people safe after overturned SUV crash

SPRINGFIELD, Md. (WUSA9) -- Virginia State Police responded to the scene of an overturned vehicle at the 166 mile marker in Springfield, Va. early Sunday morning.

Police said a Ford Expedition was going southbound on I-95 when it crashed into another vehicle at 5:33 a.m. The impact forced the Ford to run off the right side of the interstate and overturn in a ditch.

The driver and five passengers were ejected from the Ford. Police said the 7-year-old passenger landed in the culvert of the ditch and the vehicle landed on top straddling the culvert. Police said the young passenger miraculously only suffered a few minor injuries and was able to crawl out of the culvert by herself once the vehicle was taken away. She was treated and released at the scene, authorities said.

The driver of the Ford, a 34-year-old Md. woman and the four other passengers also only suffered minor injuries. They were all treated at the scene, police said.

The other car that was involved in the crash left the scene, police said. There is no description of the other vehicle at this time.
