LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC)– A crash near the Key Bridge in Rosslyn early Sunday left 21-year-old Sami Ullah, of Leesburg, dead and sent two other men to the hospital with critical injuries.

Shortly before 5 a.m., Ullah was driving a BMW M5 across the bridge at a high rate of speed, according to witnesses. Investigators now believe the car may have been exceeding 90 miles per hour. It hit a curve, flipped four to five times and came to a stop on its roof near the Key Bridge Marriott.

Ullah, who was wearing a seat belt, died at the scene. One of the passengers was ejected. Another passenger was pulled out of the vehicle. Both were taken to a District hospital.

One of the men is now in a medically-induced coma with several broken bones and a hematoma near his heart, according to police. There is no additional information about the status of the other injured passenger.

This story will be updated as more more details become available.
