An overturned car was found by local residents on the northern side of the Saint James Catholic Church and School that runs parallel to Park Ave. around 3 p.m. Thursday afternoon. Police arrived on the scene soon after and determined that an adult male was the driver and lone occupant in the vehicle. The driver sustained only minor injuries and was taken to the hospital by ambulance as a precaution.
Authorities said the driver became unconscious behind the wheel and struck the curb, causing the car to flip over and land on St. James’ property. The driver has no recollection of what happened, and will not receive a citation because the accident was caused by medical condition.
A Falls Church City street sign was damaged but there were no damages to St. James property. No pedestrians or other vehicles were harmed, damaged or involved.
