Two police officers are among those who have been taken to a hospital after being struck by a pickup truck at a busy Washington DC intersection.
The officers were on bicycles when the truck swerved around a bus, striking them at 9 p.m. local time.
A traffic aide and two pedestrians were also hit -- for a total of five victims.
One officer is listed in very critical condition. The others have non-life-threatening injuries.
D.C. Metro Police Chief Peter Newsham says a weapon was recovered from the suspect's vehicle.
When asked if he could rule out terrorism Newsham replied,"We have to look at that very closely. We do not have a motive at this time."
Both the driver and another person in the vehicle have been arrested.

Don’t they mean “Jihad” ?
No silly, it was Amish, Christian bigoted bakers with guns a blazing!
many downtown areas should be turned into pedestrian zones until the GWOT is won.
Times Square for example
Was the driver a woman texting while drving?
“Look closely” means that they will pretend to do detective work, but will arrive as the standard “nothing to see here, move along” conclusion
The Muslm problem has but one solution.
"the truck swerved"
"pedestrians were also hit"
"a weapon was recovered from the suspect's vehicle"
A terrorist driving a truck and carrying a weapon drove his truck into a group of people.
In defense of the jihadists...Washington’s street system stinks. It’s easy to get smacked there.
Darn you Pierre L’Enfant.
A name and a picture is all we'll need.
It could also be BLM terrorism and police have decided they can label it that way under Trump.
What intersection? I couldn’t tell from the pictures.
I’m guessing that in this case, the best explanation is that someone really screwed-up trying to pass a bus.
Here, where they probably know it’s not terrorism, they claim they’re actively considering it, to give themselves cover for the next time someone drives a vehicle into a crowd, while screaming “Allah whatever” and they claim “It’s clearly not terrorism”.
