Three people, including a 6-year-old boy, were hurt in a crash Wednesday morning that closed the Inner Loop of the Capital Beltway near the George Washington Parkway.
The Virginia State Police on Wednesday afternoon said the crash happened at around 10:30 a.m. A Toyota that was stopped partly on the right shoulder of the northbound lanes and partly in the right travel lane pulled into the lane of a box truck that was heading north and trying to avoid it.
The woman driving the Toyota and the 6-year-old passenger were taken to a hospital with what the state police called serious but non-life-threatening injuries. A woman passenger was also taken to a hospital with what the police called life-threatening injuries.
The truck driver wasn’t hurt, the state police said.
The road was closed for several hours and reopened around 2 p.m.
