“Dear PoPville,

I was almost hit by the car in the picture tonight near the 1300 block of Pennsylvania NW. I heard a loud crashing sound, saw a car heading straight for me followed by police cars. Fortunately, the light pole (folded over) stopped the car before it hit me. I haven’t been able to gather any additional information about the accident. Does anyone else know what happened? Why were the cops chasing this car? Are the passengers okay?”

Ed. Note: I’ve put in a query with MPD and will update if they have any info they can share.

UPDATE: MPD says this was a suspected DUI and the vehicle was speeding. The driver was transported to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.
