WASHINGTON, DC – According to an online news report at wjla.com, a motorcycle accident occurred earlier last week in Southeast DC, causing a controversy that has led to accusations made against an elected leader.*
A video caught the accident, which shows a Kawasaki motorcycle drive into a silver Toyota that was attempting to turn left at the intersection of Alabama Street and 23 Street. A 73-year-old woman was driving the Toyota. She did not sustain any injuries in the crash.
