Five Dead, Five Injured in Weekend of Traffic Accidents


Byline: Amy Doolittle, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

A rash of traffic accidents in the D.C. area over the weekend left five persons dead and five others injured, including one of the District's most familiar volunteer reserve police officers.

Reserve Officer Joseph Pozell, 59, remained in critical condition yesterday after a 19-year-old Virginia woman driving a Honda CR-V struck him Saturday afternoon at M Street and Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. The accident occurred shortly after 3:30 p.m.

Friends and family are planning a candlelight vigil for Officer Pozell at 7:30 p.m. today at 30th and R streets NW. D.C. Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey and other D.C. officials are expected to attend.

Officer Pozell, who is at George Washington University Hospital, was one of several persons involved in car accidents over the past two days.

The woman, whose identity was not released, was struck by a car traveling south near Route 202 just after 3 a.m.

Police said a Clinton man who was driving the vehicle tried to avoid hitting the woman.
