Car Flipped in Navy Yard

car-flipped

A reader reports:

“I have no idea how it happened, but someone managed to flip their car on a narrow street in the Navy Yard neighborhood around 10:30pm tonight. The block has stop signs on either end, so this is quite a feat.

As you can see in the attached photo, the roof was cut off; there was apparently a person trapped inside. The street was closed for about an hour and after the car was towed away, the broken glass and scattered possessions were swept into a pile by the curb. Since this block doesn’t have street sweeping, I wonder how long it will stay there.”

DC Fire and EMS reported:

“Accident with entrap 3rd & K St. SE. 1 trapped. Does not appear seriously injured.”

  • Street sweeping ended on October 31st.

  • “Since this block doesn’t have street sweeping, I wonder how long it will stay there.” — Try submitting a 311 request for the pile by the curb — DPW should be able to do some kind of sweeping-by-request thing to address it.

    • DC311 even has an app for this stuff guys… you can take a picture and submit it and see when they’e taken care of it and everything! AND you can see a map of what’s already been reported.
