Virginia State Police investigating crash that killed two people on I-95 in Fairfax County

Virginia State Police are investigating a fatal accident late Saturday that claimed two lives on Interstate 95’s northbound HOV lanes in Springfield, a police spokeswoman said Sunday.

Two people were killed when their four-door vehicle ran off the right side of the road near Exit 170 about 8:30 p.m., hit an unoccupied backhoe in an inactive construction zone, and caught fire, state police spokeswoman Corinne N. Geller said.

Two bodies were removed from the vehicle, which was destroyed by fire, and taken to the Office of the Medical Examiner. No identification of the victims had been made as of 3 p.m. Sunday, she said.
