Dear PoPville,

On Thursday in the 0800 hour (or perhaps slightly earlier), a bicycle traveling near the intersection of 22nd and P Streets NW was intentionally rammed by a vehicle. I did not witness the incident… I came outside shortly afterward and saw the bike on the ground and heard about it from some neighbors who HAD witnessed it. Their attention was at first drawn because the car (female driver) was repeatedly honking at some cyclists in front of it (not sure, but I think they were traveling West on P and then queued at the red light at 22nd). At some point this escalated into the car ramming a bike from behind, then driving off. When I walked by, the cyclist appeared unhurt but his bike was damaged, and police were on the scene.

Did anyone else happen to see what happened?
