A car has crashed into an office building in Northwest D.C. Friday evening.
The crash occurred in the 1000 block of Connecticut Avenue near the Farragut North Metro station at around 7:45 p.m. One of the station's entrances is closed. Connecticut Avenue has been shut down near K Street.
Law enforcement sources tell FOX 5 that a man in a stolen car intentionally ran the vehicle into the front of the building. Sources also say that they believe a can of gasoline was inside the car. Witnesses say when the man got out of the car and was talking to people in the lobby, he took out a lighter and flicked the lighter with the possible intention of trying to light the inside of the car.
FOX 5 also has learned that the man also has warrants for his arrest.
The driver of the vehicle was taken to the hospital, but is being questioned by police. He does not have any life-threatening injuries.
No one else was injured.
Anybody see Lindsay Lohan in the neighborhood?
Another disgruntled Obama supporter.
Just another drug-induced crime in DC. Probably thirty of them per week. I’ve been in living in the shadows of DC for two years, and nothing surprises me anymore. If they drug-tested all crime participants....almost 100 percent would be on something.
Perp needs a crash course in suicide bombing, if that was his intention.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see disgruntled Wisconsin losers teaming with terrorists. Lots of they’re are pissed and willing to go to the extreme.

This could be the terrorist attack that Ubama has been praying for so he can declare martial law and “postpone” the election!
Was nobama driving the car?
When it will happen, I can't say, but anyone who believes that the Socialists, Marxists, and Communists are going to give up what they have already gained merely because of the results of an election is only deluding themselves. This "election" is going to get very dirty, ugly, and probably violent very quickly if the Left see themselves losing. Whether the Republicans have the stomache for it remains yet to be seen.
Talk about flicking a lighter in a room full of gasoline.
Epic fail. Gasoline and a lighter and he still can’t go up in flames? Loser!
