A motorist came perilously close to plunging their car into Rock Creek earlier this afternoon.
Someone behind the wheel of a taxi ran their car off of Rock Creek Parkway near the exit ramp to P Street NW around 12:30 p.m. today, according to D.C. Fire and EMS.
Though the red taxi cab ran over the embankment, it did not continue into the water.
One person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries after the crash. Another person was treated on the scene, fire officials said.

This isn’t the first time someone has driven off that stretch of road. A driver plunged their car into the creek near the P Street Bridge in April.
