A multi-car crash on the Inner Loop of the Capital Beltway in Fairfax County Tuesday morning got the post-Memorial Day commute off to a rocky start and left two people injured, authorities said.
The crash on Interstate 95/395 Southbound (Inner Loop) before Interstate 395 (Exit 170) left all lanes blocked, Metropolitan Area Transportation Operations Coordination (MATOC) said.
A 6-mile backup formed, stretching to the Woodrow Wilson Memorial Bridge.
All lanes are back open after the crash was contained to the right shoulder, MATOC said.
