One person was killed in a four-car accident at Division and Eastern Avenues in Northeast D.C. late Saturday afternoon, D.C. Fire and EMS said.
The accident occurred just after 3:15 p.m. when two cars were traveling northbound on Eastern Avenue.
A silver Chrysler 300 was traveling northwest at a high rate of speed. The vehicle crossed over the double-yellow line and hit the left rear side of a white Honda Civic.
The Chrysler rotated and then hit the front end of an SUV, which had pulled from a parking space in the westbound lanes. It then flipped over onto its roof and hit a Pepco pole near the intersection of Division Avenue. The driver of this vehicle fled the scene but was apprehended a short time later.
The Honda rotated clockwise and hit two parked cars. The driver, Kim Moore, 50, of Bladensburg, Maryland, was transported to a local hospital where she later died.
Five others were injured in the accident, including two children. They all had serious but non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
The suspect is currently charged with leaving after colliding but police are still investigating to see if any other charges will be brought against the suspect.
