One person was hurt this morning after an SUV flipped on its side on a neighborhood street just north of Route 50.

The single-vehicle crash happened around 7:30 a.m. on the 10 block of N. Irving Street, between the Ashton Heights and Lyon Park neighborhoods.

Officials say the driver of a Ford SUV lost control and struck a pole, which then caused the vehicle to flip on its side, trapping the driver inside.

Arlington County Fire Department rescue crews responded and extricated the trapped individual, who suffered minor injuries and was transported to Virginia Hospital Center as a precaution, according to ACFD spokeswoman Lt. Sarah Marchegiani.

Irving Street was closed in both directions while crews freed and treated the patient.
