3 pedestrians hit by cars in D.C.
Three pedestrians were hit Monday morning by cars in separate incidents in the District, including a man who was carrying a toddler in his arms.
Shortly before 9:30 a.m. a woman was hit by a car in the 1200 block of New York Avenue Northeast, authorities said. She was taken to a hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries.
None of the other injuries appeared to be serious, according to rescue workers.
The first was about 8:30 a.m. when the man carrying a child was bumped by a car in Northeast and dropped the child, said Pete Piringer, a spokesman for the D.C. Fire/EMS department. It happened in the 5100 block of Sargent Rd NE.
The child and man were evaluated on the scene and neither was taken to a hospital, Piringer said.
Several minutes later, a person was hit by another car at 8th and Randolph streets in Northwest.
