A high-speed chase that began with Fort Belvoir Police early Tuesday ended in a crash on Interstate 95 in Dale City that ejected four passengers of a minivan.
The single-vehicle crash occurred on the Exit 156B ramp leading to Dale Boulevard from I-95. The minivan was traveling south when it attempted to take the exit ramp at a high rate of speed, Virginia State Police said in a news release.
The driver lost control and ran off the left side of ramp, struck a guardrail and overturned onto the left shoulder, ejecting four of the minivan’s seven occupants from the vehicle, police said.
All seven occupants were flown to nearby hospitals – five to Inova Fairfax and two to Washington Memorial hospital. One victim, a 15-year-old girl, appeared to have life-threatening injuries, police said.
