It certainly seems like that is what happened, and it is extremely easy for these kinds of things to happen crossing streets like H and I streets. All it takes is being in a hurry and failing to notice the “one way sign, that is why we need to slow down and make sure we have seen ALL the signs before we enter the intersection.
And when it is a “blind” intersection, we need to go slowly as we enter the intersection because crossing H street without a traffic light as is the case with 13th St means that cross traffic H&I does NOT have a stop sign and if they see you moving across slowly they can go around you but if you are crossing at high speed they can easily t bone you. These intersections are tricky.

With 3 lanes, the drivers treat H & I Streets as if they were freeways into or out of town. With little to none of speed limit enforcement, it’s pretty much a race out there from stoplight to stoplight.

Agreed. I know the person that was in the accident. It wasn’t a head on collision, he just ran the stoplight and was T boned. It was morning time and I guess just wasn’t fully awake yet. It’s the 2nd accident within 2 blocks of each other in 2 months. This time he was at fault though. Also, he’s ok, just sore but the car is totaled.

Correct. It happened at the intersection of 14th and H. This report is inaccurate on 2 accounts.

I can you at least five times while, cutting my front lawn, I had to run out and crazily wave my arms at vehicles going the wrong way on H Street. And now that the road has been repaved the 30 mph has become 50 mph.
