Fairfax Police Say Fleeing Driver Caused Crash On I-395

Police are still investigating the cause of car chase that ended in a Fairfax county crash on October 18.

The pursuit began when a Fairfax County police officer attempted to flag down a driver on I-95 North at around 4 a.m. When the driver sped from the scene, the officer gave chase near the Fairfax County Parkway.

Several additional cruisers joined in the chase before they abruptly came to a halt on I-395 near the Edsall Road exit. The civilian's car had crashed into a guardrail and become pinned against its side by one of the pursuing police vehicles.

According to police, both the driver and the officer suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The accident caused many morning delays for commuters on I-395 North, as the right lane, right shoulder and one exit were blocked until the crash site could be cleared.

Investigations into the cause of the chase are ongoing.
