Man, boy with life-threatening injuries after car collision in DC

Officials with DC Fire and EMS said that one adult may have been ejected from the car. Both are in serious condition.

WASHINGTON — A man and a juvenile boy were trapped in a car and one was possibly ejected after a collision on Saturday night, authorities said.

D.C. Fire and Emergency Services responded near the intersection of S. Dakota Avenue and Bladensburg Road in Northeast around 8:38 p.m.

Once at the scene, two passengers inside the car were transported to a local hospital where they remain in serious, life-threatening conditions. DC Police had no further information on the condition of the victims.

The District is no stranger to car collisions.

The far left lanes were reopened shortly after 6:30 a.m. to allow traffic that was caught behind the crash to move out off the roadway, but the interstate remained closed for hours before reopening around 8:30 a.m.

The two-vehicle crash happened around 1:30 a.m. just after Exit 148, VDOT officials said. The impact of the collision caused one of the cars to catch fire.

One person was killed and three other people were taken to nearby hospitals with serious injuries, Virginia State Police said. The person who was killed has not yet been identified.

Medevac was called to the scene to assist with the crash.
