BREAKING: One Injured After Car Overturns in McLean Front Yard

(Updated at 4:45 p.m.) One person has been taken to the hospital after a car ended up on its side in the front yard of a McLean home.

Fairfax County police received a call about a sedan in a ditch at Kirby and Birch roads shortly after 3 p.m. today (Monday), spokesman Sgt. Greg Bedor told Tysons Reporter.

Bedor said that rescue personnel responded, and one person was taken to the hospital with minor, non-life threatening injuries.

The crash caused a “brief road closure” of Birch Road “to get the car out safely,” Bedor said.

When Tysons Reporter showed up around 3:50 p.m., the car was lying on its side atop utility lines with the roof ripped off — though the roof might have been removed by rescuers trying to free the vehicle’s occupant.

Utility crews are checking the tension wire to the utility pole, Bedor said, adding that the crash is under investigation.
