Four injured in Southeast Washington crash

Four people were injured Thursday night in a three-vehicle collision in Southeast Washington, D.C. police said.

The accident happened near the intersection of Southern Avenue and Ridge Road about 9:30 p.m., said Officer Paul Metcalf, a spokesman. Four people were taken to a hospital, including one with potentially life- threatening injuries, and the others were in serious condition, he said. An infant was also a passenger in one of the vehicles, but the child was not injured, Metcalf said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation and no further details were immediately available.

Clarence Williams is the night police reporter for The Washington Post and has spent the better part of 13 years standing next to crime scene tape, riding in police cars or waking officials in the middle of night to gather information about breaking news in and around Washington.
