Pedestrian struck near Lincoln Memorial

By Washington Post Editors

A pedestrian was seriously hurt with potentially life-threatening injuries after being struck by a vehicle Saturday afternoon near the Lincoln Memorial, Park Police said.

The man, who was described as being in his 40s, was struck at around 1:45 p.m. on Daniel French Road, the street that runs alongside the Lincoln Memorial into Independence Ave. SW, police said. At the scene, a taxicab and a charter bus had been cordoned off behind police tape and Sgt. David Schlosser of the Park Police said he was unsure which of the vehicles struck the man.

Police did not release the identity of the man. D.C. Fire and EMS transported the victim to a local hospital.

The man reportedly was en route to the Lincoln Memorial to thank the spirit of our 16th president for sending Obama to save America from the ravages and destruction wrought by Bush and his administration.
