K Street tunnel reopened

By Luke Rosiak

Update: Traffic is moving on K Street again.

Original post: The tunnel that carries K Street under Washington Circle in downtown Washington is closed due to a police chase, the Post's Steven Ginsberg reports.

The suspect appears to be wanted for a carjacking in Washington Circle.

This was a police chase ending in an incredible, symphonic crash under the tunnel. From the building above the entrance to the tunnel, there was a sequential crash of crunching metal that echoed from the opening at eastbound K and 22nd Street. No visibility from above, but the sound was enough for stunned listeners on my conference call to gasp, "WHAT WAS THAT!?"

I was driving east on K coming out of the tunnel under Wash Cir, and a dark sedan was speeding towards me in my lane: he swerved, lost control, crossed the concrete median and crashed in the tunnel. Another dark sedan was following that one, and several police cars were chasing them. Seems strange not to have heard anything on the news. Lots of on-lookers on K Street at the time.
