Motorcycle Crash Closes Lanes on Glebe Road

A crash involving a motorcyclist sent one person to the hospital and closed lanes on Glebe Road this morning.

The crash happened around 10 a.m. in the southbound lanes of Glebe near an on-ramp to Route 50. Initial reports suggest a driver in a silver Mercedes-Benz struck the motorcycle, sending its rider tumbling onto the street.

The rider reportedly suffered only minor injuries and was transported via ambulance to the hospital.

An Arlington County Fire Department hazmat crew witnessed the crash and was the first to call it in to dispatchers, according to scanner traffic.

The southbound lanes of Glebe were blocked immediately following the crash. As of 10:55 a.m. one lane remains blocked as the motorcycle is loaded onto a flatbed tow truck.
