Car crashes into Georgetown townhouse

Georgetown residents witnessed a strange sight Thursday night after a car crashed into a three-story townhouse.

There were no injuries in the 8:20 p.m. incident, police said, but it did not stop a crowd gawking at the back end of a gray Toyota Corolla that was about three-quarters into the front entrance of the home at the corner of 28th and P Streets NW. The car appeared to have diplomatic tags.

Neighbors said the driver was clipped at a stop sign, then spiraled into the house.

Despite the damage, the rental property was deemed structurally safe, according to fire officials.
