A reader reports:

“A horrific car accident happened around 1pm this afternoon. Car totaled at least 5 cars including their own for the length of the block. Neighbor pulled a woman out of the car and they were taken to hospital. I heard a police officer report other cars were hit at 17th and A SE. It’s a miracle no one else was hurt. I stayed long enough to check the license plate when they were turned over…Maryland.”
