Ohio Dr SW - is that where it has been switched from two way to one way and it is unmarked in the southbound direction?

Super dangerous there and park police really messed up on that one.

Best wishes for the cyclists' recovery.

If the crash was by the polo grounds, that's the relatively low-traffic section of Ohio Dr near the new MLK memorial.

"NOTE: An earlier version of this story also referenced a collision between a bicyclist and a driver on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway near the exit for Route 197.

However, when police arrived, they found neither the driver or the bicyclist. They then left the scene."

Unless there was another accident this morning, this happened right by the Lincoln Memorial where cyclists make the first road crossing after coming over the Memorial bridge on the south side. When I rode by, there were several police officers and paramedics at the scene. The cyclist was laying on his side and it was unclear if he was conscious or not. Hopefully, he will be okay.

Brock Bridge Road actually runs in a nice parallel to the parkway at that point (between 198 and 197) you can see it through the trees from the parkway at several points, and it has a nice multi-use path for a mile or so. And, you can't ride on the Parkway....

I was in a bike accident on April 8. A car ran the red light on Penn and 18th and hit me in the intersection. Luckily the driver hit my front wheel and handle bars - not me directly. I fell on my wrist and hip and was happy I could get up on my own. The driver waited for me. I was in shock but I didn't think of calling the police. The driver didn't ask either. I'm aching now and hope the pain will go away. Just a word of caution to always call police even if you think you feel ok.
