Car Slams into Wall Near Yorktown High School

A car slammed into a low stone wall outside of a home at the corner of N. Harrison Street and 26th Street N. this afternoon.

The single-vehicle crash happened around 1:30 p.m., not far from the Lee-Harrison shopping center and Yorktown High School.

An adult male driver was the only occupant inside the car, a gray Oldsmobile, when emergency crews arrived. He was reported to be semi-conscious after the crash and not responding to police commands. A fire department rescue squad was dispatched to the scene to remove the man from the car.

The driver was transported to Virginia Hospital Center for evaluation. The cause of the crash and the cause of the driver’s semi-conscious state is still under investigation, a police spokeswoman said.

A large portion of the wall and some shrubbery was destroyed by the crash, but no other injuries were reported.
