Condolences: Pedestrian Hit & Run on Florida Ave.
- We offer heartfelt condolences to the family, Bishop Michael Kelsey and members of the New Samaritan Baptist Church regarding their loss. It is horrific to know that someone would hit a pedestrian and continue driving without any concern. We are glad the police were able to quickly locate and apprehend a suspect in this matter.
Additionally, we are troubled by Bishop Kelsey's ten-year (unfulfilled)request for a traffic signal in the 1100 block of Florida Ave. NE. We are calling on DDOT Director Terry Bellamy to immediately fast-track the implementation of a traffic signal at this location. No one else should be killed as a result of a hit and run at this location; a traffic signal here would have likely prevented this tragedy.
Commissioner Kathy Henderson, 5D05
