    Here’s video from the scene of the crash at 23rd and 2nd that Stephen Miller tweeted a picture of yesterday–the driver being allowed (by a non-CIS officer) to drive off: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acKLCULoSQU

    And here’s a picture of the damage. That’s the car’s hood on one side of the doorway; the bumper and grille on the other: http://www.flickr.com/photos/10798592@N08/8659705463/

    Unverified reports I heard from bystanders: one of the drivers was taken away in an ambulance. Didn’t hear of any pedestrians being hurt. According to one guy standing around, the crash may have been precipitated by some conflict between the two drivers.
