A man that witnesses identified as a parking attendant was hit by a van as he directed the driver into a parking spot in a small lot behind Boulevard Woodgrill (2901 Wilson Boulevard) in Clarendon Friday night.

The driver of the van accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake, a police officer at the scene said. The van apparently hit the man, smashed into a wood fence and sideswiped an adjacent car.

The man was lying atop the van when rescuers arrived. Several climbed onto the roof to stabilize the victim and put him on a backboard.

He was taken by ambulance to Virginia Hospital Center with a probable broken leg.

No word on whether the driver of the van will face any charges.

    With this kind of on-the-spot, timely reporting, in combination with more in-depth products like the interview with Brown, Arlnow.com shows that it can become, if it isn’t already, the best local source of news for Arlingtonians. Great job.

    • Thanks for the kind words, Thes. We’ll keep reporting on stories that you won’t hear about anywhere else.
