An 80-year-old woman received serious lacerations to her right forearm after her vehicle rolled over in front of a Santa Monica school Thursday, June 8th, Santa Monica Fire Department officials said.

Firefighters were called at 2:57 p.m. to the 2400 block of Montana Avenue regarding a report that a car had rolled over in front of the Franklin School.

School was in session at the time of the accident, which fire officials said created a traffic problem for fire companies sent to the site. Firefighters requested traffic control from the Santa Monica Police Department.

The female driver of the late model Honda sedan had allegedly lost control of the vehicle, which came to rest on its roof in the westbound lane, fire personnel say.

The woman was taken to the UCLA Medical Center in Westwood, where she was treated for her injuries.

No other injuries were reported.

Two parked cars reportedly received minor damage as a result of the accident. The cause of the accident is under investigation by the Santa Monica Police Department.
