Once freed, the driver was transported to the trauma center at George Washington University Hospital for “further evaluation,” according to ACFD.

The vehicle — described as a hatchback or hybrid SUV — was heavily damaged in the 25-50 foot fall from the highway to the roadway below. It also took out a “large light pole” on the way down, according to a fire department Facebook post.

No other vehicles were reported to be involved.
