2 pedestrians struck in NW D.C.
D.C. police are investigating two separate pedestrian-involved accidents in Northwest Washington late Wednesday night. In the first, a man was hit by a Metro bus. About an hour later, a person was hit by a taxicab.
In the first incident, a Metrobus struck a man at the intersection of 16th Street and Spring Place in the Columbia Heights area just after 10 p.m. said Officer Paul Metcalf, a police spokesman.
The Metro bus was not carrying any passengers and was on its way to Federal Triangle at the time of the accident, said Steven Taubenkibel, a spokesman. According to Metro's preliminary account, the man ran in the path of the bus, he said.
The man's injuries were describe as non-life-threatening, Taubenkibel said.
Shortly before 11 p.m., police were called to Harvard Street and Columbia Road, in the Adams Morgan area, for the report of another pedestrian struck. The two accidents were less than a mile apart. In the second case, a taxi struck a pedestrian; no other details were available.
Police are investigating both incidents.
