An entire crew of road workers was injured, including some critically, after a suspected drunk driver struck the group on an interstate in northern Virginia early Thursday morning.
The accident happened on the westbound lanes of Interstate 66 around 12:20 a.m. in Arlington County, according to the Arlington Fire Department. The Virginia State Police told FOX5 that a GMC Yukon struck six construction workers on the interstate.
Three people were riding in the SUV. Two of the occupants tried to escape before they were taken into custody, police said. Arlington Fire said that eight people were taken to area trauma centers, including some with “critical injuries.”
The driver of the GMC has been arrested for DUI, and the crash is still under investigation.
