A single-vehicle crash that resulted in a car on its roof, on rocks along Four Mile Run, ended with the driver being rescued from the creek after allegedly trying to flee the scene.
That’s according to the Arlington County Fire Department.
The fire department first tweeted about the crash near the intersection of S. Glebe Road and S. Eads Street — near Route 1 and the Metro bus depot — around 3:45 a.m. Later, the department said it had rescued the driver, who tried to flee the scene after the crash but got stuck along the water.
The rescue operation involved ACFD’s swift water rescue boats. The man was said to be safely out of the water around 4 a.m.
No word yet on whether any charges will be filed against the driver.
