The collision on Wednesday morning that left a car on East-West Highway overturned resulted in non-life threatening injuries for the driver trapped in the vehicle.

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services say crews arrived a little after 7 a.m. on Wednesday to the intersection of Grubb Road and East-West Highway in the Chevy Chase/Silver Spring area. Rescue workers found a two-vehicle collision with one car rolled on its side and driver still trapped.

The vehicle was stabilized and the driver removed without incident, according to MCFRS. An ambulance took the driver to a local trauma center with non-life threatening injuries.

MCFRS today released some photos of the incident and aftermath. It’s hoping the collision will serve as a warning to use extra caution when approaching the intersection.

As you can see, rescue workers removed the entire roof of the vehicle before extracting the driver.

Westbound morning rush hour traffic on East-West Highway was affected for some time after the collision.
