TRAFFIC ALERT: WB Rt. 50 Blocked by Accident

(Updated at 5:50 p.m.) The westbound lanes of Route 50 were blocked during Wednesday night’s rush hour due to an overturned vehicle.

The accident occurred at the intersection with Park Drive, near the Arlington Forest Shopping Center. Initial reports suggest an SUV was heading westbound on Route 50 when it hit a median, ran into a pedestrian crossing signal, clipped a van and flipped on its roof. Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to free a person who was trapped in the overturned vehicle.

The person freed from the vehicle was transported to the trauma center at Inova Fairfax Hospital.

As of 5:40 p.m. one westbound lane of Route 50 had reopened, but outbound traffic was very heavy due.
