Four people have been taken to the hospital after a sport-utility vehicle crashed in front of a Tysons Corner restaurant and caught fire.

Fairfax County fire and rescue chief Richard Bowers said Wednesday that none of the injuries appears to be life-threatening.

Bowers did not know if the people injured were all in the car or may have been patrons of the restaurant.

The crash occurred Wednesday afternoon on International Drive in Tysons Corner in front of a Silver Diner restaurant.

The vehicle, a Hummer, caught fire. Black smoke rose high into the air and was visible throughout Tysons Corner.

Bowers said police and fire officials are investigating the cause of the crash.
