    Two people are hurt after a wrong-way driver collided head-on with a car on I-66 near Rosslyn, Virginia, and fled the crash site, the Secret Service says.

    A uniformed Secret Service officer noticed a driver travelling the wrong way on I Street Northwest in Washington, D.C. about 4:35 a.m. Sunday. The officer tried to pull over the vehicle, but the driver didn't stop, said Jeffrey Adams, a Secret Service spokesperson.

    The suspect exited onto I-66 eastbound lanes and began driving in the wrong direction, Adams said. 

    The suspect then crashed head-on into a car headed east, injuring a passenger and the other driver, Adams said. The driver allegedly ran away.
