There was another bad accident at the intersection of Kansas Ave & Quincy St this morning. Police, Ambulance and Fire are on the scene. There was a toddler in one of the cars and a man was taken away on a stretcher. In the picture, you can see the man carrying the toddler away from the scene.
This is one of the most dangerous intersections in the District yet despite repeated concerns by neighbors for over two years, DOT refuses to make this a four-way stop. Vehicular accidents withstanding, pedestrians are nearly run over every day.
This is the only intersection along Kansas Ave between Georgia Ave & Spring Rd without a stop sign.”
“There was actually a second accident that day. Unbelievable. A man T-boned/sideswiped another car in middle of intersection. The biggest thing we learned though was that MPD has a policy not to file an accident report of no injuries or if a tow truck is not dispatched. DOT has repeatedly refused to put in a stop sign because they said that we didn’t meet the “accident threshold” for the intersection. This despite the fact we’ve seen at least 9 accidents in 2015 alone. DOT only had a record of like 3. Now we know why… MPD hasn’t been filing reports on the fender benders. Crazy. “
