Southbound lanes have reopened on the GW Parkway. They were closed between U.S. 50/Memorial Bridge and the 14th Street Bridge. Northbound traffic was also affected earlier.

Delays built in the area as investigators cleared the scene of a two-car crash. One vehicle was caught on video engulfed in flames with smoke pouring out.

There were no serious injuries reported.

The crash brought a large response from emergency vehicles.
