The accidents took place near the intersection of Wiehle Avenue and Dranesville Road here before eight pm. The cyclist and one of the firefighters were flown by helicopter to a hospital.

The other firefighter was taken by ambulance for medical care.

All three were reported to be in stable condition Tuesday night with non-life threatening injuries.
