A car accident on Little Falls Street in Falls Church resulted in an older woman sent to a local hospital and two cars damaged, with one completely flipping over, at just before 2 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 26, according to one of the officers who responded to the scene. Little Falls Street was closed between Park Avenue and Great Falls Street while officers and a tow truck cleared up the accident.

According to Susan Finarelli, the City’s public information officer, one car hit another that was parked and unoccupied and flipped over. The News-Press arrived on the scene as the two cars, a Nissan Sentra sedan and a Honda Civic hatchback, were being loaded on to a tow truck from Henry’s Wrecker Service, based in Fairfax.

The Honda Civic was the car being driven at the time of the accident and was badly damaged as a result of the collision and flipping over. The windshield was smashed in, windows were smashed out and the passenger side of the vehicle was scratched and dented.
