One person is dead after a crash overnight on the southern end of the George Washington Parkway.
A vehicle went off the road and hit a tree near Stratford Lane around 1:15 a.m, according to U.S. Park Police spokesman Sgt. Eduardo Delgado. The vehicle flipped over and caught fire after hitting the tree, Delgado said.
The driver of the vehicle died in the wreck. No other occupants were in the vehicle, and no other vehicles are believed to have been involved.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation, and police have not yet released the identity of the victim.
The crash is the second fatal crash on the GW Parkway this year. In April one person was killed and three were seriously injured in a head-on collision near Morningside Lane.
