3 People Critically Injured in Rock Creek Parkway Crash

Three people were critically injured when two cars crashed on Rock Creek Parkway Thursday morning in northwest D.C.

The crash took place about 15 minutes before a traffic change that would have had all traffic traveling south, U.S. Park Police said.

A southbound Ford Mustang slammed into a northbound Honda near P Street about 6:30 a.m.

Three people were trapped in the Honda and had to be rescued, fire officials said. Rescuers cut off the roof of the car to get to them.

All three were taken to the hospital with critical injuries, and one remained in intensive care Thursday evening.

The driver of the Mustang was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Officials have not said what caused the crash. It's not clear if the time restriction signs were a factor.
