UPDATE: Car-on-side crash on Admiral Way

7:55 PM: Thanks for the tips. Emergency responders are arriving at the scene of what texters describe as a car-on-side crash on Admiral Way, at/near the Schmitz Park bridge. So far dispatchers have reported only minor injuries. No images yet, but one texter says, “The car is wedged in some trees very oddly, almost flipped over. I can’t imagine how it ended up that way.” … The response is reported to be blocking the eastbound lanes.

8:47 PM: Thanks to Tony Tschanz for the photo of the tow crew hauling it out. SFD closed out its response fairly quickly, reinforcing the initial assessment of “minor injuries”; we’ll follow up to be sure.

    I passed by there yesterday and a car was on 37th and Admiral sitting on the actual sidewalk facing west, wrecked. Wedged between the stop song and bushes. Literally a block from this roll over.

      This is in the 5600 block so it’s closer to 57th than 37th:

        Ah yes, I forget about that bridge being there, thanks

      The car you saw on the sidewalk lost control, took out a cherry tree, and nudged a hydrant. No one hurt. I heard that a crash report was filed.

    Thanks, WSB.I’m pretty sure I was behind this car while I was driving home.Speeding past la rusta along the curves of beach drive and slipping over the yellow line. Then took off really fast right at 63rd heading to Admiral. so dangerous. I’m sorry they got their car wrecked- but im also glad it’s off the road for a little bit.

      No the car that was involved in the crash was not speeding you are mistaken and thinking of a different vehicle the same night
