Motorists and pedestrians can expect road closures in the area as we investigate.
Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”
From the LeDroit Park Listserv:
“Sadly, this does not at all appear to be an accident.
It looked like an intentional hit and run following an early morning argument between a few individuals in front of the LeDroit market. One individual began to leave the scene on foot and the driver involved in the argument swerved to strike him as he sped away up 4th.
From our camera footage, the vehicle appeared to be a recent model dark gray or black Ford Escape and the altercation took place around 1:45 AM. The car and other individuals came from the east walking west on T and it sounded like something happened that direction that started the altercation. If you have street facing cameras anywhere around the circle or west on T, please provide them to MPD as soon as possible. We provided all our footage this morning to officers on the scene.”
