SUV Overturns in Cherrydale

An SUV overturned as a result of a collision at the intersection of N. Randolph and 21st Streets Wednesday morning.

Neither the driver of the SUV nor the driver of the white sedan with which it collided were injured in the crash, which occurred around 9:00 a.m. The SUV ended up on its roof on N. Randolph Street, but traffic on the small, residential street was able to drive around the damaged cars.

The driver of the SUV — which was heading uphill at the time of the wreck — said he didn’t see the stop sign at the intersection, which is partly obscured by a power line pole.

“The next thing I knew it was airborne,” he told ARLnow.com. “I have no idea how it flipped.”

The driver was able to exit the overturned vehicle via the passenger-side door.

Residents of the Cherrydale neighborhood came to the scene after the wreck, and one witness who saw the crash said she had sent complaints to the county about the stop sign before. A similar accident happened in the same place nine months ago, the woman, who asked not to be identified, said.

“They’ve got to fix the stop sign,” she said. “This is not a safe corner.”
