Fairfax County Police

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.

    I saw that on the way home from work. There was a ton of emergency vehicles. I am surprised that it was that many emergency vehicles for just 2 cars. I am glad to hear that there were no life threatening injuries.

    Just fyi, this story didn’t arrive at my inbox until 4 pm on Saturday, Dec 14th. Not such “breaking news” now.

      Yes, but it is up on the site and on facebook and twitter immediately, helping thousands of readers at that time. Because it happened after the Friday newsletter went out, it came in a Saturday email. Feel free to ignore if this does not interest you.
