Public safety bolo, there’s a maniac on the loose.

My car and myself were victims to a hit and run, in the area of Missouri and Georgia Ave NW. The vehicle was speeding, ran a stoplight, hit my car, and continued speeding onto Georgia in the direction of Takoma Park, MD. Particularly concerning is that it didn’t even slow down after it hit me and very obviously caused damage.

What to look for:
A large boxy black SUV with DC tags, either a Cadillac Escalade or a Chevy Suburban/Tahoe. Driven by a younger AA man with short hair. My car is light blue-grey color, so it should likely have damage including a scuff of paint of that color somewhere on the vehicle (I think on the passenger side).

One of my coworkers said they saw a vehicle/individual matching the description casing houses and cars in her neighborhood nearby, and I saw a similar report from a reader here on Popville.

The accident has already been reported to DC and MD police, however the case is cold without more information. Please contact me if you happen to have experienced something similar and have a tag number!!

Takoma Busboys and Poets Opening?

Has anyone heard when the new Busboys and Poets will be opening in Takoma? All of the earlier announcements about it said “Spring 2014,” but the Takoma Central development looks like it still has a long way to go.
