A mom and her two young children died following a three-vehicle crash on eastbound Interstate 66 in Dunn Loring, Virginia on Thursday. 

Two children were admitted to Fairfax Inova Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The crash took place before 3 a.m. on eastbound I-66 at mile marker 64.7 near the Interstate 495 exit, according to Virginia State Police.

Officials attended the scene and saw that a tractor-trailer and two passenger vehicles crashed on I-66.

The family driving eastbound on I-66 lost control of the car near the 64-mile marker and hit a Toyota SUV.

When the Honda steered off to the right side of the highway, it hit a guardrail and got back to the traffic on I-66 hitting the Toyota a second time. The Honda then hit the guardrail on the left side of the highway and spun back into the eastbound lanes of I-66.

In order to avoid the Honda, a tractor-traveling on the eastbound lanes swerved to the right to prevent the spinning Honda, but the two vehicles crashed with each other.

The driver of the Toyota SUV was also admitted to a nearby hospital.

The man driving the tractor-trailer had no injuries.

Lanes on eastbound I-66 were closed after the crash but were later re-opened.
