Overturned Car Closes Road in Pentagon City

(Updated at 1:15 p.m.) Police and fire crews are on the scene of an overturned vehicle in Pentagon City.

According to police, shortly after noon a woman in an SUV driving northbound on S. Hayes Street attempted to make a left turn onto Army Navy Drive. She allegedly failed to yield to a vehicle coming off of I-395 onto Hayes Street. The SUV flipped onto its roof after hitting the Dodge Challenger.

Firefighters assisted the woman in getting out of her SUV and bystanders helped remove her two young grandchildren, who were in car seats. All three were transported to George Washington hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the Challenger was not injured.

Police closed both directions of Army Navy Drive and are currently in the process of re-opening the road. Traffic exiting from I-395 onto Hayes Street is being re-routed around the accident.

Police say it is likely that the driver of the SUV will be charged with failure to yield the right of way.
