Around 9 p.m., a pickup truck, traveling at “a high rate of speed,” struck the three, D.C. police Chief Peter Newsham said. The crash happened along 18th Street near Columbia Road Northwest.
Witnesses told NBC Washington that it happened when the pickup truck attempted to maneuver around a Metrobus.
All three were taken to the hospital. One officer is in critical condition, Newsham said, and the other two had injuries that are believed to be not life-threatening.
The truck also hit another vehicle past Columbia Road, Newsham said.
The driver has been arrested.
