The intersection was closed as of 1 p.m., but Ballantine said it should reopen shortly.
Police said Virginia State Police involvement meant the pursuit almost certainly started on one of the nearby interstates — the intersection is a mile away from I-395 — but the details on where and how the chase began were unclear.
NOTIFICATION :: The Alexandria Police Department is assisting the Virginia State Police in the intersection of Fort Williams Parkway and Seminary Road. The intersection closed. Expect police activity in the area.
