Leesburg man killed in Sunday morning crash
A 21-year-old Leesburg man was killed in an early morning car crash March 10 in Arlington.
According to Dustin Sternbeck, public information officer for the Arlington County Police Department, Sami Ullah was driving his 2008 BMW M5 at 80 to 90 miles per hour from Georgetown to Arlington when he struck a curb on the Key Bridge. Ullah lost control of the vehicle, which flipped four to five times before coming to rest on its roof in front of the Key Bridge Marriott.
Ullah was pronounced dead on the scene.
The two passengers in the car, also from Leesburg, suffered critical but non-life-threatening injuries. The back seat passenger was ejected from the vehicle, while the front seat passenger was helped from the wreckage by Virginia Department of Transportation employees. Both men are currently being hospitalized at the George Washington University Hospital.
Arlington Police are still investigating the accident.
