Car crashes into D.C. house, driver flees

D.C. police are looking for a driver who crashed a car into a Northeast home Wednesday morning and then fled the scene.

The accident took place in the 2600 block of 24th St. NE., near Douglas St. NE. Shortly before 10 a.m., police say, officers reponded to a 911 call of a hit and run accident.

When they arrived, they found the car — which has Maryland license plates — crashed into the house but the driver was nowhere to be found, said Officer Anthony Clay, a police spokesman.

One of the occupants, described as an elderly female, was taken to a hospital for further evaulation; the other two were examined at the scene but were not treated for any injuries, Piringer said.

Police are investigating whether the car was stolen, possibly from Prince George’s County, Clay said.
