Four others suffered minor injuries in the crash, which occurred shortly after 3:15 p.m. Wednesday when the van struck a jersey wall on the Dulles Access Road.
Authorities re-opened the toll road portion of the highway around 5:30 p.m. However, the access road remained closed as officials worked to clear the accident scene.
