Both drivers were killed in the crash. Nobody else was hurt in either vehicle. The driver of the SUV was killed at the scene. The driver of the minivan died a short time later at a local hospital.

Northbound traffic was rerouted onto the Beltway until around 11:30 a.m. Southbound lanes were being rerouted onto Powder Mill Road, but those lanes reopened around 9:45 a.m.

Police have not identified any of the victims involved in the crash.
