Driver Seriously Injured After Car Slams into Wall at Air Force Memorial

A driver suffered critical injuries in a crash on Columbia Pike next to the Air Force Memorial Sunday night.

The single-vehicle crash happened just before 5:45 p.m. A driver apparently lost control and slammed into the corner of a large concrete wall next to the entrance to the memorial.

The driver was found unconscious and was initially reported to be pinned inside the car, but was freed by firefighters, according to Arlington County Fire Department spokesman Lt. Shawn Pendo.

The victim was transported to George Washington University Hospital with life-threatening injuries, Pendo said. There was no update on his or her condition as of Monday afternoon.

Columbia Pike was closed in both directions Sunday evening while police investigated the crash.
