Painter Seriously Hurt in Clarendon After Lift Tips Over

A painter was seriously injured in a jobsite accident in Clarendon this morning.

The incident happened just after 9 a.m. near the entrance to the Market Common Clarendon parking lot, on the 2800 block of Clarendon Blvd.

“At approximately 9:14 a.m. police were dispatched to assist medic units with an industrial accident,” said Arlington County Police spokeswoman Ashley Savage. “Early investigation revealed a painter was on a lift which tipped over causing the painter to fall approximately 25-30 feet.”

The worker was transported to the trauma center at George Washington University Hospital with what were initially believed to be critical injuries. However, the injuries are now reported to be non-life threatening.
