Update: More details on the accident from WashCycle.
I walked by this scene at 31st and M in Georgetown last night: squad cars and yellow tape around a Washington Flyer taxi, its windshield badly cracked, a mangled bicycle under its tires. Vnangia tweets that the accident was fatal. MPD had officers directing traffic around the scene (which got a bit confusing for drivers and pedestrians alike as the traffic lights were still running at the time, nearly causing more accidents), and M Street was backed up significantly. (But then, when isn’t it?)
Also mentioned on Georgetown Metropolitan. No mention on the MPD-2D mailing list. Anyone else see what happened?
not sure this one was fatal – Washcycle reports that one witness said: ” Cyclist was put on a backboard and he had movement in his arms as he was put in the ambulance.”
Things could have really taken a turn for the worse at the hospital…but hard to say.
Thanks, Bilsko; I’ve updated the post with a link to WashCycle’s entry.
