A car flipped over after a crash on the southbound George Washington Memorial Parkway on Friday afternoon.

According to scanner traffic, the crash occurred just south of the Spout Run Parkway exit at around 3 p.m. A woman was reportedly ejected from a car by the impact. She was transported to the hospital at around 3:40 p.m. in a critical condition, per scanner traffic.

Arlington police and fire units responded to the area with U.S. Park Police, which stopped southbound traffic on the George Washington Parkway from Route 123 and the southbound ramp from the Spout Run Parkway.

At 3:50 p.m., Park Police said on Twitter that northbound lanes on the GW Parkway may also need to be closed temporarily.

Arlington police recommended travelers find an alternate route.

ABC7 reporter Kimberly Suiters reported seeing good samaritans trying to rescue the driver of the car that flipped.
