The crash, which occurred about 3 a.m. and left the vehicle on its side, forced police to shut down all lanes on the bridge for several hours.
Police identified the driver as Johnathan Sadler of Northwest Washington.
The incident occurred in the 1500 block of Pennsylvania Avenue SE when police said Sadler, driving a 2011 Lexus, struck a curb and lost control as he headed east.
