Crazed cab crashes along P Street
An out-of-control cab careened down P Street, hitting a pick-up truck, knocking over a city tree, and landing on a brick retaining wall, inches from a townhouse. The incident happened just before 1:00
p.m. across from Rose Park in the East Village. The owner of the P Street house got a call from a friend, describing what had happened. “By the time I got home, I was happy to see the police were already on the scene.” She said she was shocked to see the cab so close to her house, but glad no one was hurt. “The driver seemed disoriented,” the homeowner said. “I asked him if he needed some water, but he said he was fine.” An antique car parked on P Street was also damaged in the accident.
