A pedestrian was rushed to the hospital during rush hour Thursday morning after she was struck by a taxi close to the Rosslyn Metro station.
The woman was walking north on N. Moore Street, crossing busy 19th Street N. about 9:15 a.m. when she was hit by a D.C. cab, witnesses and the cab driver said.
The cab’s passenger, on her way to work, said her ride was interrupted by a shout.
“I heard a scream and then he slammed on his brakes,” the passenger said, declining to provide her name.
A witness said the pedestrian was in the crosswalk when she was hit.
“She didn’t stop walking,” said a consultant, 34, who had been walking to work, noting that he didn’t see the color of the traffic signal.
The driver, 70-year-old Charlie Harrison, said the pedestrian crossed in front of his car as he had a green light.
“I never saw her. She walked right in front of the car,” the D.C. resident said, pointing to his dangling passenger-side mirror.
Harrison, who said he’s been behind the wheel professionally for 50 years, said safety is his top priority but admitted to having hit a pedestrian in D.C. “about a year ago.”
“The other person I hit was a drunk,” he said about the midday crash near 10th and U streets.
The pedestrian hit Thursday morning was transported to George Washington University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Arlington police said.
Officers at the scene declined to disclose whether Harrison would be charged for the crash, and Universal Cab refused to comment.
