Construction Accident Shuts Down Lynn Street Friday Morning

An accident at the Central Place construction site in Rosslyn shut down N. Lynn Street earlier this morning.

The accident happened around 6:45 a.m. Lynn Street was closed at Wilson Blvd due to the emergency response.

“A construction worker was unloading material from a crane when the material fell on top of him,” said Arlington County Police spokeswoman Ashley Savage. “Other construction workers on scene were able to [free] him.”

A construction crane was used to bring the injured worker down from the fifth level of the under-construction building, said a fire department spokesman.

The worker was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
