A car flipped on its roof on the eastbound lanes of Lee Highway this afternoon, sending at least one person to the hospital.
The accident happened between N. Nash and Quinn Streets, near Rosslyn, around 3:30 p.m. today (Friday). The late model Toyota Corolla somehow overturned, coming to rest in the left-hand lane of the three-lane thoroughfare.
One person was transported from the scene in an ambulance while police closed the two left lanes. A Bergmann’s Cleaning truck remained on scene while its driver gave statements to Arlington County police officers. It’s unclear whether the truck was involved in the accident or if the driver was being interviewed as a witness.
The car lost its right rear wheel in the crash, and the area around its left rear tire was stripped of paint in the accident.
