Scooter driver, motorcyclist killed in DC crashes

WASHINGTON — A motorcyclist and a teen scooter rider were killed in separate crashes in the District late Tuesday evening.

In the first crash, D.C. police said 15-year-old Dominique Antonio Lewis and another passenger were riding a scooter on 15th Place in Southeast D.C. when it collided with a car that had just pulled into the intersection of 15th Place and Shippen Lane.

D.C. police said both Lewis and the other scooter passenger were thrown from the scooter and landed on pavement. A U.S. Park Police helicopter responded to the scene and transported both to the hospital where Lewis died. The other scooter passenger is in critical condition.

Later on Tuesday, D.C. police said 30-year-old Jarrod Robert Bishop of Northeast D.C. was riding a motorcycle in the unit block of Hawaii Avenue Northeast when he struck a vehicle that had slowed down to make a left turn. Bishop’s motorcycle then struck a parked car and he was thrown from the motorcycle striking the pavement, police said.

Bishop was taken to a hospital where he died.

Police are still investigating both crashes.
