Traffic is being diverted to 13th, 15th or 16th streets northbound and 13th or 16th streets southbound.

Probably will end up being more than just a hit-and-run on this individual's record. A Hyundai SUV sped down U St. swerving to avoid cars before flying through a red light and plowing head-on into an SUV at 14th and U St. NW. The driver of the Hyundai bolted from the vehicle as police cars swarmed to the scene. The driver and a police officer on foot collided at the NE corner of the intersection, but the driver ran off into an alleyway on U St.
