VIRGINIA BEACH -- A car flipped on Shore Drive in Virginia Beach early Friday.

It happened just after 5 a.m. on Shore Drive at Hatton Street near First Landing State Park.

The driver was able to get out of the car and was being checked out by paramedics.

The crash forced police to close westbound lanes on Shore Drive so a tow truck could remove the car from the median and to clear debris from the road.

All lanes reopened at 6:15 a.m.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
