Nationals manager Matt Williams gave new meaning to the term hit-and-run on Tuesday.
While driving to the ball park, Williams was doing an interview with a radio station in Washington when he got hit by another car. Radio hosts EB, JP, Cakes and Lurch were in the midst of an interview when this happened, according to CBS DC:
“Sorry guys, I just had an accident,” Williams abruptly said.
“You okay?” EB asked.
“I’ve got a police officer behind me. This guy’s gonna try to escape,” Williams said. “The guy’s running.”
“Alright, hold on,” EB said. “Did you witness the accident, or you’re in the accident?”
“He just ran right in the back of me,” Williams said.
“Oh, you got rear-ended?” JP asked.
“I just got rear-ended by a guy in a car,” Williams said. “Hold on. This guy’s crashing into people.”
“Oh no,” EB said.
“Yea,” Williams confirmed.
“Are you okay?” EB asked.
“I’m good,” Williams said. “There was a police car behind me, and a guy in a car and he tried to get by me and he just smoked me.”
“Where are you driving right now?” Cakes asked.
“I’m almost to the ballpark,” Williams said.
“And did he get out of his car and start running?” Lurch asked.
‘Yea, he tried to get out of his car, and then he got around me, and then they’re continuing to chase him,” Williams said.
No word on whether or not Williams was using his hands-free device. Check out the entire interview here:
