On the morning of October 5, a vehicle with Maryland license plates struck a residence on the 2600 block of 24th St. NE near Douglas St. NE. One of the occupants of the house placed a 911 call reporting a hit-and-run accident.
By the time the authorities arrived, the driver had fled the scene and left his vehicle behind.
D.C. Fire & EMS Spokesman Pete Piringer stated that three people were home when the crash took place. Their injuries were non-life-threatening, but one of the victims, an elderly female, received hospital treatment.
Police suspect that the car may be stolen, and are asking anyone with helpful information to come forward.
