The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a deadly car crash on Interstate 395 in Southwest D.C. on Sunday.
At approximately 7:45 p.m., a Hyundai Elantra was traveling south in the Ninth Street tunnel, police said. The driver of the car began to take the westbound ramp and struck the jersey wall twice for reasons unknown, causing the car to crash over the wall and onto the southbound I-395 below. The Hyundai landed on the back of a Lexus, flipped upside down and skidded on its roof until it came to a complete stop, MPD said. The driver of the Hyundai was ejected from the car. The Lexus also flipped onto its roof and then struck a third vehicle that was traveling south on I-395.
