A 31-year-old Prince George’s County man was arrested for driving while intoxicated after a crash that seriously injured his female companion in the West End.
The suspect was arrested and released on Saturday, July 3. The crash occurred at around 1:20 a.m. that morning in the area of N. Quaker Lane. His four-door white 2017 BMW 540i traveled at a high rate of speed and rear-ended a vehicle waiting for a light to change, police reported in a search warrant.
The airbags in the BMW deployed, and the victim(s) in the other car were not injured.
“An occupant in (the suspect’s) vehicle was taken to Fairfax INOVA hospital with significant injuries,” police said. “The occupant was initially diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury and a broken spine.”
Police later went back to the hospital to check on the passenger, and it was found that she did not have a traumatic brain injury. Her spine had to be fused, however, and she will need physical therapy.

The crash occurred around 2:15 a.m. at King Street and Chesterfield Road, within the city’s northern border. The driver was initially trapped in the mangled car, a white Lexus, after crashing into a utility pole near the intersection. He was extricated from the wreck by firefighters.
It is not clear yet if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash since the driver was unconscious when emergency personnel got to him, according to an Alexandria Police spokesman. He was taken to George Washington University Hospital with serious injuries.
The crash occurred near the Shops at Summit Centre and the National Tire & Battery at 4720 King Street.
