Continuing our new series, well this can’t be good (or people driving poorly – reader’s choice), behold 11th and Euclid Street, NW.

Russell reports a bit before 9pm:

“Tractor trailer stuck blocking 11th St NW by Euclid. Tow truck in the picture just gave up, drove away. Appears to have just happened, neighbors gathering and buses don’t seem to know about it. No driver to be seen.”

Wreck happens at 1:44 seconds. This evening on 495 a group of cyclists were riding in 3-4 lanes blocking traffic. As the motorists behind them grew more impatient coupled with some (not all of them) riding ON ONE WHEEL, getting aggressively close to any motorists who tried to pass (made the Food Lion driver really mad!) I knew it was just a matter of time before someone wrecked. *Both of the riders are ok* Edited to add: The 2nd biker (the one who is is laid out on his back) was actually hit by someone else and not affiliated with this group. Those 3 guys came up to this group just happened to be trying to get past the group when a biker clipped him from the right hand side he was unfortunately hit. Exiled 1823 MC, DC – I certainly hope your guy is making a full recovery.

Well this is just amazing. From the New York Times:

“President Trump on Monday removed Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, the White House announced, ousting him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.”

In other Presidential news:

From a press release:

“What:

“Happy Birthday, Mr. President”: An Obama Birthday Celebration in commemoration of President Barack Obama’s Birthday, with an outdoor screening of “Believe: The Story of Barack Obama.” Seating will be provided and guests may also bring their own folding chairs and lawn chairs. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

As a new resident of DC, I was thrilled to learn of the charging station on 14th, at U street, directly in front of the Municipal Building. It’s a pretty popular spot, so I always check my app to see when the charging unit is not in use before heading over to charge.

I went over this past Saturday morning at 6:45am, and saw this car parked in the clearly defined space.

Last time I checked, this model Ford was NOT an electric vehicle. (more…)
