“Right around 3:00am a minivan, which was in pursuit by police, crashed at the corner of Q St NW and New Jersey Ave. A man jumped out of the driver side and ran east on Q St, chased by police cars. In seconds at least 10-15 more police vehicles arrived. The van had caught fire pretty immediately following the crash and it engulfed the front half of the van by the time fire trucks arrived. Thankfully, firefighters put it out before an explosion could happen. About 20 minutes later, a search helicopter was circling the area with a search light.”
