A hit and run accident sent three people to the hospital this morning.

The accident happened around lunch time on George Mason Drive, just north of Virginia Hospital Center. Initial reports suggest a van hit a sedan, sending the sedan into a pole. Three people who were in the car were brought to the hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the van reportedly fled the scene after the accident. Officers and a police dog searched for the driver, but were not able to find her. Shortly after the search was called off, a woman fitting the description of the van driver showed up at the scene and was searched by officers. No word on which charges, if any, will be filed.

    I hope the three people sent to the hospital are OK. Sadly, the way many people drive in Northern Virginia, this accident doesn’t surprise me. It seems each year in this area, drivers become more rude, reckless and careless. I wonder if the driver in the van was texting or fiddling around with her cell phone.

    The chick must have been distracted looking at porn on her smart phone. If only she had listened to the Diocese!

    Seriously, with all the elements that this story has going for it – van drivers, people running away from minor accidents, police dogs, the terrible stretch of george mason near the hospital – this is all we can come up with in the snarkiness department? I’m ashamed.

      Van drivers are some of the worst drivers. I swear, every time I get near a Toyota Sienna an accident is just waiting to happen. What the hell is it with Sienna drivers?

        Ain’t that the truth! Seems it is a tossup between van drivers and SUV drivers. I’ve had a lot of close calls with both. Nine times out of ten, the “driver” is yapping on their cell phone or texting instead of paying attention to driving their boat.

    She must of have been on a sugar high from the cupcakery crawl she just did and ran away to hide her stash that she bought from a moped riding narcotics dealer.

    • Her brown flip flops got stuck in the accelerator

  • Where’s the Chopper?

    Where is that darn ACPD helicopter that NovaPJ keeps suggesting? People are dying out here, put that chopper in the sky!
