“Dear PoP,

Interesting hit and run in the 300 block of Rock Creek Church Road Nw this morning. Witnesses heard a crash and saw the driver of the vehicle trying to leave the scene. The driver was traveling uphill (northeast) along Rock Creek Church Rd, crossed the yellow line, and smashed into vehicles parked on the other side. Once the driver saw he had an audience, he got out of the vehicle and walked away. Described as a Hispanic male wearing blue shorts.

If anyone saw anything or anyone suspicious this am hiding or seemed out of place, please contact MPD.

Parked cars were removed via tow truck.”

    Yikes! that is right around the corner from my house. Unfortunately I must have already left for work because I did not witness anything.

    Did he have MD plates?

    I only just now noticed that the hit-and-run seems to have taken place right in front of a house that’s on the market. I feel bad for the sellers (and hope that the house has off-street parking).

    Wait–no 128 posts as with on admittedly dysfunctional poor blacks/teens and their crimes? I guess Latinos who meet their stereotypical crime level get a pass? LOL just kidding. This was messed up.

      not to feed the trolls, but it seems to me that the crimes that usually get the fast and furious responses on this blog are the violent ones. sounds like this guy was drunk/reckless/had stolen a car and didn’t really care what happened to it, but it doesn’t sound like he was intentionally trying to hurt someone.

    Sounds like the guy on our street a couple years ago who damaged about 10 cars; one of his wheels pulled off in the storm inlet, he still drove almost a mile on three wheels and with the air bag deployed! He was Hispanic too and drove the same make of car pictured here.

    Reading 4D list serves, many Central Americans in D.C. are driving with no Drivers License. My neighbor was hit by an Central American from Virginia on Georgia Avenue, NW and Hamilton Street, NW. The guy hit him and kept going. Many Central Americans are illegal, have no auto insurance, and no Drivers License. Many times the flee the seen to keep from being arrested.
