Police investigating hit-and-run crash that allegedly involves DC councilmember's car

DC Police are investigating a hit-and-run crash that allegedly involves the car of Ward 8 councilmember Trayon White.

A preliminary crash report obtained by FOX 5 says the incident took place Monday night along I-295 near the Malcolm X Avenue exit in Southeast Washington.

A driver involved told police their car was rear-ended by another driver who took off before providing necessary documentation.

That driver took pictures of the BMW allegedly involved with a license plate which read: "Councilmember Ward 8."

White was arrested in D.C. back in 2017 for driving with a suspended license. That case was dismissed.

In the past, White also posted a Facebook video as he was pulled over in Prince George's County and revealed his license plates that were then registered to the late former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry.

FOX 5 has reached out to White for comment but has yet to hear back.
