FAIRFAX, Va. - A woman and two juveniles were killed in a horrific crash Thursday morning on Interstate-66 in Fairfax County.
The incident happened just after 3 a.m. along the eastbound lanes of I-66 prior to Interstate-495.
Investigators say a Honda SUV - with the woman driver and five juveniles inside - lost control and struck a Toyota SUV before leaving the roadway and hitting a guardrail. The impact sent the Honda back into the roadway – striking the Toyota for a second time – before it was stuck by a tractor-trailer.
Police say the woman driver and two juveniles died at the scene. The other two juveniles are being treated at Fairfax Inova Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Toyota was transported with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.
The identities of the victims have not been released at this time. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
