Parts of the Beltway were closed for hours overnight as Virginia State Police investigated a collision that left two people — who appeared to be pedestrians at the time — dead at the scene.

It was reported around 11:10 p.m. on the southbound (inner loop) local lanes of I-95 prior to Telegraph Road. This is at the edge of the Alexandria city limits. That is where officials found three vehicles that appeared to be involved.

Investigators are trying to determine the circumstances that led to the two persons being struck, either as pedestrians or possibly after they were ejected from an auto. State police said a Toyota Corolla stopped in the center lane where two men exited the car and then were struck by other vehicles, Patch reported.
