A pedestrian was struck by a Envirocab taxi just before noon today. It happened just outside the Nordstrom at Pentagon City mall.

The cab driver remained on scene and was talking to police. At one point he showed officers a small dent and scratches on the front passenger’s side bumper.

The victim was taken to a local hospital via ambulance. His or her condition is unknown.

    Hybrids do create a more ‘stealthy’ hazard for pedestrians to ‘watch’ out for. They are whisper quiet when running on their battery and so you lose the ability to hear where they are.

    I am more often a pedestrian than driver–and I am appalled at how careless people are who walk out–or often run out– into traffic without looking.

    I have complained to the Arlington Taxi Association (official name slips my mind) about the re-design of this area. The taxis are wreckless and I have seen them cut each off to try and pick someone up. They need to move the taxi stand to the other side of the road where the buses are and where no one is crossing the road.
