The Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher was struck by a black SUV last night as he was crossing the street.
I was right across the street from the CVS, and I waited for the crosswalk light to tell me to go before I crossed. I had plenty of time left, according to the countdown clock. I was more than halfway there when a black SUV made an illegal left turn and hit me head-on. I absolutely had the right of way. I yelled something like, “Are you really doing this?” as it hit me before I could move. I landed on my face on the street and smashed my glasses and scraped my hand and immediately I knew something was wrong with my left knee. [read the entire account here]
It gets stranger:
I’m told by multiple people that the SUV that hit me was Secret Service. If this is true, I want to know why that happened. I was crossing legally, and they just left me there. At the very least, I want an apology. What happened to me was wrong.
Treach is recovering, but pissed. As he should be.
Our family here at FamousDC wishes him well and that he enjoys a speedy recovery.
