Brookland In Photos – Surreal Damage From A Car Wreck

A neighbor on Kearny hipped us to the freak result of a police car chase that made its way from Prince George’s County and ended badly all the way in Brookland on Kearny Street NE between 12th and 10th. Unfortunately, a number of cars were totalled or badly damaged in the resulting wreck. Added to the damage is this ‘no parking’ sign. Can you believe this? The impact of a car hitting the pole ripped it in half and threw the top part of the sign pole –  not just 40 feet away but about 10 feet high and impaled the trunk of this tree like a spear. This was one of four recent high-speed accidents with multiple cars damaged in Brookland over the last couple of weeks.
