Fairlington Sign Demolished by Out-of-Control Car

An out-of-control driver ran into the Fairlington Villages sign on 30th Street S. last week.

About half of brick wall and sign, which is on the corner of 30th Street and King Street, was destroyed as a result of the collision. The sign includes a “historic district” plaque that was not damaged in the crash.

Via Facebook, the Fairlington Villages condominium community said that the incident “is now a police matter.”

A police spokesman was unable to immediately confirm whether the wreck was connected to the crash of a stolen vehicle in Fairlington that was reported early Tuesday morning.
