SUV demolishes LeDroit house

Before heading to bed I was just about to turn off the TV when I saw the news report (WUSA 9)that just a few blocks from my house a SUV (kinda looks like a Jeepy thing) with windows blown out collapsed part of a building at FL and 6th. Good lord, people lived in that house! If it is the house I'm thinking about. I hope I am wrong. But the house across the street is unmistakable, the purple one with the porthole windows.
Maybe there might be more news when I wake up tomorrow.

OMG, who got killed? They hauled the driver in for drunk driving. What happened to the people who live there? Imagine if it was a wood framed house.

Well according to CFO's tax office it is a "brick veneer". That does not sound good.
Sadly "life" in the city is proving that these buildings are not as solid as they are hyped up to be. They are a heck of a lot more solid than your average wood framed house. You's think SUV vs 100 yr old brick house the brick house would win. Neither won.
The Post says a Mt. Ranier, MD man was killed. A drunk guy in the SUV killed him and the house.
