Authorities say nine people were taken to the hospital, and two of them remained in critical condition Saturday. Six more were treated at the scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation but police say the driver was working as a rideshare driver and had a passenger at the time.

The crash happened on a busy thoroughfare not far from the line with the District of Columbia.
