Traffic was snarled during Friday rush hour as Fairfax County Police were called to the scene of an accident on Fairfax County Parkway Southbound over Sunset Hills Road that injured several people and has caused traffic to be rerouted onto Spring Street.

The accident occurred shortly after 6 p.m. Two people were trapped in the cars and had to be removed by police, officials said. Their injuries were not serious, but both roads were closed so police could assist.

Traffic was still being rerouted as of 6:35 p.m. but police said the scene should be clear soon.
