The main lanes of southbound Interstate 95 have reopened at the Fairfax County Parkway Friday morning after being blocked for about three hours because of a crash involving a tanker truck that arose out of a police chase.
The Express Lanes have been reversed early and will be southbound.
The Virginia State Police said in a statement that around 8 a.m. they were trying to stop a car on the Capital Beltway near I-95 they said was reported stolen from Maryland.
When the man didn’t stop, the police gave chase, and the car hit a tanker truck, went across the road, striking a Jersey barrier near Exit 166, the exit for the Fairfax County Parkway.
The driver was flown to a hospital for what the police described as life-threatening injuries.
