Two people sustained minor injuries, officials say, after a car became overturned in the 3rd Street Tunnel on Saturday.

DC Fire and EMS says it happened just after 1 p.m.

Officials say the car, a dark-colored Honda sedan, was going through the northbound side of the 3rd Street Tunnel near U.S. Capital Exit 1, when the car crashed and flipped onto its roof.

DC Fire and EMS were able to get both passengers out of the car. They say both patients had minor injuries.

DC police say the tunnel has been closed in the northbound direction, and traffic has been detoured.

DC Fire and EMS has not released the current condition of the patients, nor any details from their investigation into the cause of the crash.
