3 hurt in fiery crash on East Capitol
Three men were injured Friday night in a fiery single-car crash on East Capitol Street, authorities said.
The car apparently struck a tree around 7:30 p.m. near 40th Street SE, said D.C. fire department spokesman Pete Piringer.
Flames ignited the tree, the car and grass in the area. The car was heavily damaged. The blaze produced a column of smoke visible from a distance.
At least one of the three people in the car who were injured was reported in life-threatening condition.
The site of the crash was about three-quarters of a mile east of the Anacostia River, near the Benning Stoddert recreation center.
