Bus 1; Pedicab 0

Via @segaljen:

While on an N4 bus heading westbound on Friday, the bus hit a bike cab with a passenger in it on the corner of P and Connecticut, right outside the Dupont Circle.

The bus was stopped at a light waiting to turn right, as was the bike cab.

When the bus operator turned right it clearly underestimated the amount of space it needed to make the turn and literally ran into and knocked over the bike cab.

Sitting on the back of the bus, I luckily (unluckily) saw it all.

After the bus operator hit the bike cab, he got off and yelled at the cabbie saying he shouldn’t have been there, instead of, oh I don’t know, asking if they were okay.

I got off, went over to the people asked if they were okay, then asked if it was okay to take pictures of them and the accident to post on Twitter.

The passenger, a tourist, was injured and EMS, police, and the whole shebang showed up.

All I was trying to do was get home before 5.
