9th and Rhode Island Ave, NW Friday around 2:30pm
We were driving at 20-25 mph through Rhode Island coming from NE to NW DC. We had just started crossing 9th street NW after the signal had been green for a few seconds. Suddenly a white Dodge Charger, driving at what I estimate was >70 mph, skipped the red light on 9th street and hit our car on the left side. Thankfully the impact was mostly on the front and not the passenger side door, otherwise it would have been much worse. Read More
Thanks to Brian for sending around 6pm:
“Worst intersection in the neighborhood to walk through, lucky that this doesn’t happen more often.
The M Street drag strip from the Wharf all the way to the Southeast Freeway is pretty terrible, but it’s at its worst where it sees a lot of pedestrian crossings. I really hope nobody was injured, but especially that no pedestrians were involved.”
Joe reports: “2 am between Fuller and Euclid on 16th NW. Heard a monstrous crash and thought i was dreaming but only one car upside down.
now I think i see what the car hit – those two almost totalled”
