The accident occurred just after 11 a.m. on Riverside Drive at 30th Street, in the Woodland Heights neighborhood.
A vehicle went down the embankment and could barely be spotted from the road, coming to a stop in a dense thatch of brush.
Police said that the vehicle ran off the road, and one person has been taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
This stretch of Riverside Drive runs parallel to the Buttermilk Trail and the James River. The road is curvy and often flush with embankment, with no guardrail.
