Alexandria man identified after Sunday’s crash at Duke Street overpass on Interstate 395

(Updated at 5 p.m. on Nov. 30) Virginia State Police have released the identity of the driver in Sunday’s fatal single-vehicle crash at the Duke Street overpass of Interstate 395 on Sunday.

Alexandria resident Eric G. Jones, 46, was killed after his SUV crashed and became wedged under the overpass.

“A 2019 Honda HR-V was traveling north when the left front tire (a spare tire) blew out,” VSP said in a release. “This caused it to run off the right side of the road where it struck the overpass support.”

The crash was reported around 4:23 p.m on the northbound side of I-395 at Exit 3B.

The crash remains under investigation, VSP said.
