About 11 a.m., Allen witnessed the woman being struck by a car at the intersection of 9th Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue NW. He stayed with her until an ambulance arrived, according to a tweet from Allen.

The woman had the light to cross and was in the crosswalk when she was struck.

Mark Eckenwiler, an ANC 6C commissioner who was at the scene shortly after the accident occurred said on Twitter it appeared that the woman was hit by a taxi turning left onto Pennsylvania Avenue. He also added that the woman was taken away in an ambulance.

Representatives from D.C. Fire and EMS could not be reached immediately to confirm the accident or any information on the victim.
