“Dear PoP,

Last friday, a bus driver hit a jogger in AM on florida and hmm?? somewhere in there. i’ve been waiting FOUR DAYS for you to come back and report on this. is the jogger still alive? did the bus driver survive her difficulty breathing? wot happened??”

The incident was reported on by DCist and the Washington Post. The Post writes:

“At 8:31 a.m., [Amanda] Mahnke was running north on Connecticut Avenue when a bus heading east on Florida Avenue struck her in the intersection near DuPont Circle, authorities said. She did not have any identification on her, so authorities transported her to George Washington University Hospital as a Jane Doe.

She was listed in stable condition late Thursday night with a fractured skull, said her father, Mark Mahnke. She has several other fractures that are not considered life threatening, he said.”
