The intersection of 16th and R Streets NW was partially blocked for about two hours around 9 pm on Saturday. Borderstan spoke to bystanders, witnesses and police on the scene to piece together what happened. A man was driving a station wagon with DC plates westbound on R Street NW when he hit a car at 13th Street NW. The driver of the station wagon continued westbound, with the car and driver he had hit following him. When the driver of the station wagon turned to go north on 16th Street he hit another car. Neither of the drivers in the two cars that were hit were injured.
Following the accident at 16th and R, both DC Police and an ambulance were on the scene. The driver of the station wagon was on a stretcher, having suffered minor injuries from the collision at 16th and R. His passenger, a woman, was on the ground behind the station wagon — police were having difficulty subdueing her. Police eventually took the woman away in a police van while the driver of the station wagon left in an ambulance.
