BREAKING: Woman Pinned by Minivan in McLean Driveway

A woman was pinned between a minivan and a house after an unusual accident in McLean.

The crash happened in the driveway of the home on the 6800 block of Dean Drive, near Westmoreland Street, shortly before 1 p.m. Firefighters from Fairfax and Arlington counties used heavy equipment to free the woman, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

It was not immediately clear to rescuers how the crash happened, nor was it clear whether the woman had been driving the van or was simply standing next to it when it pinned her against the wall.

“It was probably just one of those weird things where something happened and she was stuck,” one first responder said.

The woman was transported via ambulance to Inova Fairfax Hospital.

During the rescue operation, a passerby stopped to see what was going on and remark on the number of emergency vehicles on the street.

“There was more response for this than for the double homicide here a few years ago,” she said.
