Several people are in the hospital after a vehicle went off the road and crashed into a group of pedestrians Friday morning in Annandale, Virginia. Now police have revealed more details about the crash Saturday afternoon.

Fairfax County police said the crash happened just after 11 AM in the 7200 block of Maple Place. The driver of a Nissan Sentra spilled food and a drink in her car and lost control of her car, crossing the center median. The car then entered a parking lot at 7263 Maple Place, striking four pedestrians among a group discussing a local community project.

The driver, a passenger, and all four pedestrians were taken to the hospital. One person, a woman, has life-threatening injuries and remains hospitalized, police said. The other pedestrians were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
