Teen struck by hit-and-run, dad chases and catches driver

Pretty crazy story from WJLA: a 15-year old girl was struck by a car at 14th and Spring on Sunday when she was walking with her family. The car jumped onto a curb, the dad was able to push his wife and son out of the way but couldn't reach his daughter. The crazy part his next: the dad chased the driver, grabbed the wheel and made the car crash.

The driver claimed his brakes didn't work. Police are still investigating, and the girl is in the hospital but will be alright.

In any case, if you're a driver, BE CAREFUL. And ditto if you're a pedestrian or bicyclist.
