“Dear PoPville,

Look at the path of destruction a speeding car made through Manor Park (5th street up by the Takoma Rec center). It jumped the curb, took out a fire hydrant, city trash can, a brick walk, the entire fence, and even snapped a full grown tree in half (that’s what looks like a bush at the end of the yard).

Of course the driver was going much faster than the posted 25 mph speed limit. Got any ideas on how fast? I say 50mph. What’s your guess?”

“Dear PoPville,

I noticed this last night/this morning on the west side of Dupont Circle–it looks like someone drove straight down Mass Ave and into the circle. Anyone see what actually went down?

Hope everyone was okay (driver and pedestrian)!”
