From Fredericksburg Police:

Early Monday, at approximately 2:24 a.m., the Fredericksburg Police Department E-911 Center received a call from a victim of an armed robbery in Spotsylvania County at the City/Spotsylvania County line. The victim advised the 911 operator that the suspect vehicle was traveling into the City on Lafayette Boulevard. A patrol officer saw the suspect vehicle on Lafayette Boulevard near Longstreet Avenue and initiated a traffic stop. The driver ignored his commands and accelerated speed. The driver turned right onto Lee Drive at a high rate of speed, lost control, and struck a tree.
Five people were in the vehicle. Two of the occupants, one of whom was the driver, died on impact. Three were transported to Mary Washington Hospital and remain in critical condition.
The family of both deceased have been notified. Their names will be released in 24 hours.
The Fredericksburg Police Department would like to thank the Fredericksburg Fire Department, the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Reconstruction Team, the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office, the US Park Police, and Stafford County Fire Department for assisting with the investigation.
