Nationals Manager Rear-Ended While Giving Phone Interview
Nationals manager Matt Williams was rear-ended during his regular Wednesday-morning interview with 106.7 The Fan's "The Junkies." Williams narrated the full ordeal live on-air. You can listen to the audio here:
I’ve got a police officer behind me. This guy’s gonna try to escape. The guy’s running. He just ran right into the back of me. I just got rear-ended by a guy in a car. Hold on. This guy’s crashing into people.
There was a police car behind me and a guy in a car and he tried to get by me and he just smoked me. I’m almost to the ballpark. He tried to get out of his car and then he got around me [in his car] and now they’re chasing him.
The cops are gone. They’re chasing him. That’s the strangest thing I’ve ever been a part of, right there. The guy behind me was trying to get out of his car -- they had him wedged in, and then he got around me, he hit another car going by him.
We’ve got a helicopter overhead right now. Unbelievable. That’s unbelievable.
So what about baseball?
The Junkies are no strangers to road violations on their show: Chris Cooley was pulled over during an interview four years ago, as did Clinton Portis. Maybe the lesson we should all learn here is that when you're driving, focus on the road instead of giving phone interviews to radio stations.
