WASHINGTON – Two people were killed in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 95 in Prince William County Thursday morning.
Virginia State Police say a Ford Focus lost control and was hit by flatbed tractor-trailer shortly before 10 a.m. The Ford and and the trailer then hit a Honda Accord, hit a jersey barrier and traveled another 150 feet before coming to a stop near Exit 150 for Triangle.
The driver and passenger in the Ford both died at the scene, police say.
The drivers of the tractor-trailer and the Honda were not injured, according to police.
The crash remains under investigation.
All northbound lanes were closed for several hours. Lanes had reopened to traffic by 2 p.m.
Traffic was diverted at Exit 150 for Joplin Road and onto U.S. Route 1 while police investigated the accident, which caused delays between Triangle and Dumfries along Route 1.
