“Dear PoP,

I bike past the site of the crash every day on my commute to work and noticed that there were flowers in front of the Keren restaurant and a sign in memory of Julia Bachleitner who died yesterday. The artsy picture had also been ripped apart. I spoke briefly to the owner who was sitting outside the restaurant. He said he would rebuild with the insurance money and reopen. I could tell that he was saddened to be a part of this situation. He spoke mostly of the women who were hit.”

From MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department announces that one of the pedestrians from the auto crash, which occurred in Adams Morgan on Wednesday, September 8, 2010, has died. The victim is identified as 26 year-old Julia Bachleitner of Austria.

On Wednesday, September 8, 2010, at approximately 8:30 pm, a vehicle heading south on 18th Street Northwest, was attempting to turn east on Florida Avenue, Northwest, when it drove onto a traffic island and struck two pedestrians who were standing on the island waiting to cross.The vehicle continued across Florida Avenue, Northwest, and crashed into the front of a restaurant.

The two severely injured pedestrians were taken to local hospitals and the operator of that vehicle was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault and Driving While Intoxicated.”
