“apparently a drunk driver went the wrong way on Abbey Place NE”

A reader reports:

“So, apparently last night [Saturday] a drunk driver went the wrong way on a Abbey Place NE and lost control of the vehicle. 6 cars damages and some property damage.”

Ed. Note: Before the inevitable, I shall remove the suspense – they were DC plates.

    1) Glad to see that apparently no one was seriously injured.
    2) Now take away the driver’s license.

    This just pisses me off. So stupid. So avoidable. There really is no reason to drink and drive, especially if you live in the DC metro area, even moreso if you live in the district.

    Looks like a Maryland plate, but I can’t be sure….

    • DCMau5

      incorrect. the article clearly states theyre dc plates.

    • Q

      Really? We gotta do this every time? Was there ever a point that it was funny? — DC resident for 20 years who’s never lived in MD

      • On Capital Heels

        Agreed. It’s annoying, unfunny, and unnecessary.

  • That One Guy

    I’m sure the driver said s/he only had a sip of beer or a glass of wine.
    The commitment to destruction is impressive.
