Thanks to all the readers who wrote in and sent photos from last night’s crazy scene at 18th and Harvard St, NW. It happened around 9pm last evening. One reader writes:
“Apparently pedestrians attempted to prevent the truck driver from making this turn to no avail. not sure how clear it is but he has smashed the bricks encasing the lawn and stairs and knocked over the street sign and the stop sign. the many police on the scene seem unsure how to dislodge it.”
Another reader writes at 10pm:
“Came home tonight to find this truck took out a lamp post and stop sign and slammed into the side of building on the corner. Also side swiped three cars.
Looks like everyone is okay, but it’s still there….”
Update – A reader sends a shot of the scene this morning:
