Update, Tuesday, 6:00 pm: “It appears that the vehicle was left in neutral and simply rolled out of its space,” DPS Chief Jay Gruber said. “The vehicle was unoccupied when the accident occurred. There was nobody driving it. There was no foul play. It wasn’t intentional. At this point in time, we don’t anticipate anybody getting any tickets or anything like that.”
The crash ended up damaging University property in the accident. “It’ll be referred to our office of risk management, which does all our insurance claims to work it out with the car insurance company,” Gruber said.
Gruber did not have information at hand to say whose car it was.
Original post: At approximately 11 p.m. tonight, a car crash was reported in the parking lot behind Wisey’s. It appeared that there were no injuries, and Wisey’s continued to operate as usual until closing time. A tow truck was called to the scene, but the car remains firmly lodged in the fence.
Both DPS and MPD were present at the scene, but DPS and Wisey’s staff declined to comment. Vox will keep you posted with updates as the story develops.

Just kidding guys; no one really likes cats.
But seriously, this summer, Vox is going to be alive and well. I’ll be writing remotely from the Big Apple while fighting the good fight at a law firm, but we have a whole team of bloggers in D.C. to keep the ship afloat. With assistant blog editor Connor Jones as news beat reporter and sports editor Kevin Joseph on the latest sports happenings, Vox is in good hands. Don’t hesitate to contact us here or follow us here.
This summer we’re looking for new writers, and our features are wide open. If you’re interested in writing music reviews or covering free food and events in D.C., let us know!
So keep your commenting feisty and flourishing and look back here for what we can only hope will be fewer Catholic controversies and more on Georgetown models and “parties in big weathered barns.” Vox wishes you an excellent summer.
