Police and firefighters were on the scene of a fatal accident in Chevy Chase, Md., where a car swerved head-on into a tree.

An accident on Connecticut Ave. in Chevy Chase, Md. today claimed the life of a woman.

Police are on the scene of the fatal accident, which happened shortly before noon on Connecticut Ave., just before South Irving St. According to Montgomery County Police, the woman was the passenger in the vehicle. The adult male driver was transported to the hospital.

Kimberly Holland witnessed the accident, and along with others in the immediate area, sprung to action to try and help the victims of the accident.

"I saw this car swerve and hit the tree head-on. I turned back around on Connecticut Ave., jumped out of my car and opened the driver's door," says Holland. "And then we saw flames coming under the car and some other witnesses and I were scrambling to find fire extinguishers and to help these people out."

Right now, traffic on southbound Connecticut Ave. remains closed heading from Connecticut into Chevy Chase Circle, as authorities investigate this accident.
