Editor's Notebook: Carjacking, Ribbon Cutting and More

A look at a few of the most notable stories this week on Georgetown Patch.

Carjacking and Chase End in Georgetown Crash

In the middle of a rain storm Tuesday, a car crashed into the sidewalk at Wisconsin Avenue and Q Street, NW in Georgetown. The car was involved in a carjacking and police reportedly identified four individuals involved, making several arrests.

A resident of 32nd Street told Patch that one of the suspects went through several backyards on the 1500 block of 32nd Street to avoid capture and even broke into a home to steal a coat to cover himself.

Patch is waiting for the incident report to become available to provide more details.

O&P Project Ribbon Cutting

District and community leaders brought to an end 18 months of construction on O and P Street, NW in Georgetown. The project was more than 20 years in the making.

Human Remains were Historic and We've Got Pictures

During routine construction to dig a driveway last week, contractors accidentally discovered a human skeleton buried about five feet below the foundation of a Georgetown home on the 3300 block of Q Street, NW.

Dr. David Hunt, a museum specialist in physical anthropology in the Department of Anthropology at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History, told Patch that the bones were "obviously historic in nature."

Then he shared photos with us.
