“Dear PoPville,

A pedestrian was struck outside my office this morning – adjacent to the Hart Building. I did not see it happen. The car (and driver) that struck her was there with a visible dent in the front left bumper, though I cannot confirm that this was from the accident. Police were immediately on the scene and an ambulance shortly thereafter. She was not moving. This intersection can be pretty chaotic in the morning and the Capitol Police do their best to keep traffic flowing. I wanted to check with the community to see if there is an update on her condition. Those who saw it happen and those passing by were very visibly and understandably shaken up, as am I. I hope she will be ok.”

“Pedestrian Struck – 2nd St. NE and Maryland Ave. NE – Units on scene.”

and another reader sent word around 9am:

“Heads up: police have blocked off E St NW between 10th and 11th streets.”

“Pedestrian Struck – 1000 block of E St. NW – Units enroute.”
