FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Two men have died and a third suffered serious injuries after police say a driver tried to flee a potential DWI arrest.

Fairfax County Police say an officer tried to stop the driver of a 1999 Dodge Neon on Hilltop Road in the Merrifield area around 1:50 a.m. Monday when the driver attempted to flee.

Police say the car ran off the road and hit a tree.

The driver and passenger were pronounced dead at the scene. The third was taken to the hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries.

Police did not identify the three men. They say alcohol and speed were factors in the crash.
