A reader reports:

“Happened right at the end of the presidential debates at Camden Roosevelt on 16th and V NW. Neighbors heard tires screeching and then a loud crash like a trash truck emptying a dumpster. I can’t tell if there is any structural damage to the building, but his car is straddling the surrounding fence. The ambulance is still here, so I doubt the driver is seriously injured. The assumption is a drunk driver, but I have no way of knowing that for sure.

Update since my last email: We saw who we assumed was the driver walking from one ambulance to another. He seemed unsteady, but I still couldn’t tell if that was because he was under the influence or shaken up from the incident. Our building appears to be fine–the fence took the bulk of the impact and two window frames in our gym appear to be slightly damaged.”
