MPD investigates two car collision with injuries: 4700 block of Georgia Ave, NW

From MPD:

On Sunday, September 30, 2012, at approximately 4:15 am, patrol officers from the Fourth District came upon the scene of a crash involving two vehicles in the 4700 block of Georgia Avenue, NW. The officers observed that the occupants – two adult males in one of the vehicles, were trapped inside and unable to free themselves due to the crash. The officers also observed that the vehicle was on fire and the flames were overtaking the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Both officers immediately responded over to the burning vehicle and were able to remove both the driver and passenger.

As a result, the occupants sustained third-degree burns over a large portion of their bodies and the officers, as a result of their life saving efforts, also received minor burns to their hands and arms.The occupants of the burning vehicle were transported to a local hospital where they were admitted for their injuries and are listed in critical condition at this time. The officers involved were treated on the scene by members of DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services.

The striking vehicle was operated by 38-year-old male who had one adult male passenger in the front seat. Both occupants of the striking vehicle sustained minor injuries as a result of the crash and were transported to area hospitals for treatment. Members of the Metropolitan Police Department’s Major Crash Unit responded to the scene and the area hospitals, where they determined that the operator of the striking vehicle was under the influence of alcohol at the crash and placed him under arrest for Driving Under the Influence. Further charges are pending.

This case is currently under investigation by the Major Crash Unit. Identities are withheld until next of kin notifications are made.
