Speeding Truck Mows Down People In D.C.

While most of the country was talking about the Comey hearing, very few noticed the possible terror attack which took place in Washington, D.C. Thursday evening.

The officers were on bicycles when the truck swerved around a bus, striking them. A traffic aide and two pedestrians were also hit – for a total of five victims.

One officer is listed in very critical condition. The others have non-life-threatening injuries.

A weapon was recovered from the suspect’s vehicle. When asked if he could rule out terrorism, D.C. Metro Police Chief Peter Newsham replied, “We have to look at that very closely. We do not have a motive at this time.”

Vehicles have been the weapon of choice for terrorists lately, which is why this incident raises a red flag. This could be a DUI case, but with a weapon found in the truck, I wonder.

  1. Interesting that there was barely a peep about this “incident”. It is Ramadan and people need to be extra vigilant these days. It is, however, pathetic that you can’t even walk down a sidewalk without fear of being mowed down by a terrorist. Makes me kind of thankful I am in “fly-over country”.
