Car Crashes into Westwood College in Ballston

A car crashed into the front of the ground floor office of Westwood College in Ballston tonight.

The incident happened just before 8:30 p.m. at 4420 Fairfax Drive. A man driving a sedan suffered an apparent seizure, lost control of the car and crashed it into the front of the building, according to Arlington Deputy Fire Marshal Brian McGraw.

“A car hit [the] building and looked split up the middle of the engine compartment,” one passerby told ARLnow.com via email. “The driver had been removed from the car by the time I got there and was lying on the ground nearby, very dazed.”

The man suffered minor injuries and was transported to the hospital, McGraw said. No one inside the building was hurt.
