A woman was seriously injured after a car she was driving flipped over near the intersection of 16th Street and Park Road NW around 9:30 a.m., say D.C. Fire and EMS officials.
Witness Manuel Ramirez says the driver plowed into a lamp post before the car flipped and struck several vehicles, including his.
“I saw the car come flying down the road,” Ramirez said. “She hit a lamp post across the street, and I don’t know if the curb made the car flip, but she hit three cars, and stopped when she hit mine. I usually have my 10 month old son with me, but thank goodness I didn’t today.”
