I am writing to report an accident that happened this morning just before 8 am on 14th Street NW at Fairmont, going southbound. It looked like it involved a cab and a bicyclist. First responders were on the scene when I walked by at 8 and the bicyclist was being back-boarded and loaded into the ambulance.
This is tragic and notable in part because on Thursday, Sept. 30 around 7pm there was another accident with a cab and pedestrian. One observer at this morning’s accident mentioned that the pedestrian in Thursday’s accident was killed. I have not seen anything written about either accident.
“Accident: Cyclist struck 14th & Fairmont St, NW. male Conscious and breathing. S/B 14th St closed @ Girard St use 13th St NW as alt route.”
and the Washington Post’s Tim Craig tweeted:
“accident at 14th and Fairmont NW Involving a Taxi, cyclist and apparently a dog. Dog Doa.. Cyclist being transported. Street closed.”
Ed. Note: 14th Street has since reopened.
