    “Just saw a biker being loaded into an ambulance on H St bridge. Is he okay? They’d cut off clothes and he wasn’t moving. There was a bikeshare next to him. Hope he’s okay.”

    @DCPoliceDept tweeted:

    “Street closer for pedestrian struck on 3rd and H St. NE. H St. from North capital to 3rd St/ both East and West Bound.”

    Now NBC Washington reports it was a hit and run and police are looking for a gray Honda SUV:

    “The bicyclist was taken to an area hospital with serious to life-threatening injuries.”

    UPDATE from MPD:

    “The Metropolitan Police Department’s Major Crash Investigations Unit is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying and locating a vehicle of interest in connection with a hit and run involving a bicyclist which occurred in the 200 block of H Street, Northeast.

    On Thursday, May 1, 2014, at approximately 9:48 pm, an adult male operating a bicycle was travelling eastbound within the 200 block of H Street, Northeast, near Union Station, when he was struck by a dark grey, four-door, Honda Accord with unknown tags. The vehicle continued eastbound on H Street, NE, failing to stop.

    Anyone with information about this vehicle or its driver is asked to call the police at (202) 727-9099. Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.”

    A friend posted to fb about this thursday night: "I watched yet another bicyclist go down on H St last night - this time a hit and run. Biker friends - G & I now have contra-flow bike lanes (thanks, DDOT!). Use them."
