A person has died after a three-vehicle crash occurred early this morning (Monday) on I-95 in the Springfield area.

According to the Virginia State Police, troopers responded to a crash in the interstate’s southbound lanes at the 169 mile marker (Franconia Road) around 3:33 a.m.

“The impact of the crash caused one of the vehicles to strike the cement Jersey wall and catch fire,” VSP spokesperson Corinne Geller said in a statement. “A passerby was able to pull the passenger from the burning vehicle.”

The driver of the burning vehicle has been confirmed as the fatality. The passenger was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

The occupants of the other two vehicles involved in the crash did not report any serious injuries, the VSP says. An investigation of the crash is currently underway.
