Didn’t know if any readers had emailed in about the incident that occurred on the Calvert St bridge between Woodley Park and Adams Morgan this evening. I was trying to catch the circulator around 6:30 when someone indicated that the bridge was closed due to someone “trying to jump who was dangling off the side of the bridge”. Right around that time about 3 fire trucks and a handful of emergency vehicles were speeding toward the bridge from Adams Morgan. I walked to Columbia Heights instead of catching the bus, and returning home hours later (almost 11:30 PM) still saw police, and this time the street was completely shut off at Calvert and Lanier going toward the bridge. The officer said someone had tried to pull something but had been accosted, without giving further detail. There were still a ton of flashing lights in the vicinity of the bridge around 11:30. Does anyone know what happened? I hope if someone was trying to pull something, they are okay.. just a bizarre incident overall.
“Units are on the scene Calvert street bridge with a person threatening to jump” which was thankfully resolved without incident. I haven’t heard any about any other incidents.
