Multi-Vehicle Accident on Wilson Boulevard

(Updated at 4:25 p.m.) A multi-vehicle accident has closed a stretch of Wilson Boulevard near Clarendon.

One of the vehicles involved  — witnesses say it was a D.C. taxi cab — lost control while driving toward Clarendon on Wilson Boulevard. The vehicle slammed into a car just outside Arlington Autocare, causing one of the store’s windows to break. It continued through the intersection, took out a traffic light control box, smashed several cars in an auto dealership lot, and slammed into the side of the Doctor’s Building before coming to rest.

At least one person was transported to a local hospital. Initial reports suggest the accident may have happened when the cab driver suffered some sort of medical emergency.

The stretch of Wilson Boulevard between 10th Street and Washington Boulevard is currently closed. Traffic signals at the Wilson Boulevard and 10th Street N. intersection are expected to remain dark for at least several hours while crews work to install a new traffic control box. Police have set up cones in the intersection to allow traffic to flow through, without turning.

A man who was boarding up one of the windows at Arlington Autocare said there were customers inside the store at the time of the accident. According to the man’s account, the cab hit a car in front of the store which was then pushed into the store’s window, breaking it. Had that second car not been there, the man said, the cab may have plowed right into the store, injuring those inside.

Validating one’s emotions has the power to heal, transform, and empower. What Is Validation? Every human being has feelings. We all have emotions that change over time, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. The question isn’t whether we feel; it’s how we handle feelings once they arise.

Building strategies to understand emotions is essential to positive mental health, and validation is one effective skill to practice.

Emotional validation is the process of understanding, embracing, and actively listening to another person’s feelings (or your own).

Understanding someone’s emotions doesn’t necessarily mean you approve of how they are feeling or reacting to something. You can be supportive in acknowledging and validating an emotional experience without agreeing or diminishing it. Validation is a skill to learn and improve over time. It may take practice, but the effort is most certainly worth it. Emotional validation has the power to enhance interpersonal communication and foster strong relationships.
