Police Chase Supports Traffic on Northern Virginia I-395

Police say a suspicious vehicle rammed the state police cruiser twice and fled.

A police chase causes traffic chaos on Northbound Interstate 395 in Virginia during rush hour on one of the year's busiest travel days.

The chase ended on Edsall Road, where several police cruisers were at the scene, and traffic was propped up for miles.

The chase started just before 5 pm. The police officer stopped on the shoulder of Northbound Interstate 95 in Prince William County to help another soldier stop traffic and crashed into a black Chevrolet Malibu that fled the scene.

The injured soldier chased Malibu and was arrested in Fairfax County, south of the mixing bowl in Springfield, according to Virginia State Police.

Police said the Malibu driver then rammed the soldier's car, forced it off the road, and stuck it to a jersey wall, causing it to flip on its side. Malibu left the scene again.

Police said the suspect vehicle continued north on Interstate 95, then boarded I-395 northbound.

Fairfax County Police said a few minutes after 5 pm, Fairfax County officers responded and saw Malibu and chased her with Virginia State Police.

Chopper4 had finished the chase as the Malibu crashed into several other vehicles and finally the gates of the fast track before hitting the middle at 395 on Edsall Road.

The police detained the driver. Douglas Johnson Jr., 31, of Maryland, was charged with speeding in dribbling.

A video from Chopper4 showed no lanes of traffic for a while before the right road opened at around 5:30 pm. Since then, the Ayman lane has reopened.

Two right-hand lanes on I-95 were closed at Lorton as the cruiser capsized.

Police said the soldier in the overturned car was taken to the hospital as a precaution. He was wearing a seat belt.
