Arlington, VA

A Volvo crossed two lanes of traffic and slammed into a light pole in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven across from Kenmore Middle School this morning, according to witnesses.

The force of the collision knocked the pole to the ground, damaging an SUV in the process.

A man and woman who were in the front seat of the Volvo were both transported to the hospital with injuries, witnesses say. Two children who were in the back seat were brought to the hospital with the adults, but were apparently not injured. The driver of the SUV, who was in the vehicle at the time of the collision, was also uninjured.

It’s unclear what caused the accident, which occurred around 11:00 a.m.

At least one northbound lane of Carlin Springs Road was closed following the collision. The 7-Eleven and another businesses in the small strip mall remained open. Dominion was called to help shut off power to the pole.
