WASHINGTON - Northbound lanes of Interstate 295 have been closed after two dump trucks collided, critically injuring both drivers.

D.C. fire department spokesman Pete Piringer says the crash was reported about 2:45 p.m. Thursday near the Laboratory Road exit. One truck had overturned.

Piringer says two patients were taken to the hospital with serious and life-threatening injuries. A search dog was brought in to find any other passengers in the wreckage, but nothing was discovered.

Another crash on Interstate 295 near Howard Road on Thursday afternoon also injured as many as four people. Piringer says their injuries were not considered serious.
