Update from DC Fire and EMS: “Update crash with multiple injuries 5500 block Conn. Ave NW. #DCsBravest transported 8 patients to area hospitals. 5 of those are critical. Currently 3 additional treated and released on scene. No entrapment and no structural damage.”

One reader reports: “I heard the crash and immediately went outside and saw tables everywhere and the car on top of people. Immediately men ran out of nowhere to help lift the SVU off of a woman who is trapped. Not sure if that is the woman who has passed away or not. It was horrific and scary and there were tears everywhere. My friend who was sitting out side said it looked like the person meant to press the brakes quickly but instead accelerated quickly. Starbucks closed for the day as did most places around.”

DC Fire and EMS reports:

“Crash with Mass casualty incident declared 5500 block Conn. Ave NW. Vehicle struck outside seating area of restaurant. #DCsBravest triaging multiple patients. No structural damage.”
