Arlington crash leaves Leesburg man dead, two injured; traffic on Key Bridge diverted

This post has been updated.

Arlington County police were investigating an early Sunday morning crash that left a 21-year-old Leesburg man dead and two others injured.

Police say Sami Ullah was driving about 90 miles per hour around 4:58 a.m. when he lost control of his 2008 BMW M5 and struck a curb as he crossed over the Key Bridge from Georgetown into Arlington. Arlington police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said Ullah’s vehicle rolled over about five times and came to a rest on its roof.

There were two passengers in the vehicle, one of whom was ejected from the car. The second passenger was able to remove himself from the car. Both passengers were taken to George Washington University Hospital and were listed in serious condition.

Sternbeck said as the investigation continues, traffic in the area, specifically on the northbound Lee Highway ramp and Key Bridge, was diverted onto the George Washington Parkway.
