D.C. Councilman Barry involved in late night crash 

The Washington Post is reporting that Ward 8 member of the Council of the District of Columbia (and former Mayor) Marion S. Barry, Jr. was involved in a minor traffic crash in the 1000 block of First Street, S.E. early today (at 12:10 A.M.).

I find this interesting because Mr. Barry has long been an advocate for mass transit and an opponent of highway improvements in D.C. (see one example here), and is currently an alternate member of the Board of Directors of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, which means he has a free, unlimited-use transit pass.

Wonder why Councilmember Barry wasn't riding transit?
