(Updated at 11 a.m.) A fiery crash on the Capital Beltway in Tysons last night (Tuesday) resulted in two deaths and another person being hospitalized.

According to the Virginia State Police, the crash occurred around 10:15 p.m. in the northbound lanes of the Beltway, also known as I-495, near the exit for Chain Bridge Road.

Confirming a preliminary report that the crash came after a driver was spotted going in the wrong direction in that area, police reported this morning (Monday) that a Mazda was traveling south on I-495 North and hit a Buick Encore head-on, causing the Buick to catch fire.

One occupant was reported heavily entrapped and another was ejected. The drivers of the two vehicles, both men, died at the scene, according to police.

“A female passenger in the Buick was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital and then on to Washington Hospital Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries and burns sustained in the crash,” the VSP said.

Police say that none of the people involved in the collision were wearing seatbelts.

“The crash remains under investigation,” state police said.
