Just after 9 p.m. on Sunday, a woman riding her bike crashed while down a long, concrete staircase just above N 42nd St. and 1st. Ave. NW.
We arrived just after medics rushed her to the hospital. Neighbors who heard the crash called 911, and they told us the 20-something woman was wearing a mountain climbing helmet, which had slipped off after the crash. They said it appeared the woman was partying with friends and may have been inebriated at the time. She apparently flipped end-over-end, landing on the last few stairs.
The woman was unconscious and bleeding when medics arrived. There’s no word on her condition. (Thanks Silver for the tip.)
