Breaking: (Robert) Novak cited after hitting pedestrian
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 10:42 AM by RamboLiberal
Source: Politico

Syndicated columnist Robert D. Novak was cited by police after he hit a pedestrian with his black Corvette in downtown Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning.

A Politico reporter saw Novak in the front of a police car with a citation in his hand; a WJLA-TV crew and reporter saw Novak as well. The pedestrian was hospitalized but there were no details about the persons condition. Novak was later released and left the scene.

I didnt know I hit him, Novak told Politico. Novak said he was a block away when a bicyclist stopped him and said, "You hit someone." He said he was cited for failing to yield the right of way.

D.C. police confirmed that there was an accident at 18th and K streets N.W. at approximately 10 a.m. involving a black Corvette convertible and that the driver was a white male.

The intersection is in the hub of Washingtons business district and is filled with pedestrians who work in the law firms and lobby shops that line the corridor.

WJLA has story.

Prominent Washington commentator Robert Novak was cited with failure to yield to a pedestrian Wednesday morning after striking a pedestrian with his Corvette, Novak confirmed to ABC 7 News.

The collision happened about 10:07 a.m. at 18th and K streets NW.

Novak was not arrested. He spoke to ABC 7 News at the scene. Novak said he did not know he had struck anyone.

Metropolitan Police Department (web|news) officers detained Novak at the scene for about an hour.

D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Alan Etter said the pedestrian complained of pain in his arm was taken to George Washington University Hospital with minor injuries.

2. Didn't he do this before?
I remember a story that came out sometime during the past seven years about some Republican gasbag who hit a pedestrian with his car. He got off scot- free, but I don't remember who it was.

I think it was Jack Cafferty, and he hit a cyclist and even dragged the person's bike a few blocks before he stopped.

109. You have no idea, my friend.
He got loose the other weekend when we had a bad storm here, and I was terrified. But I got him a name tag, and a really nice couple picked him up and called me. So he's home and safe. But I don't think anybody's ever safe from Novak's car, even if we don't even leave the house, given his apparent eyesight and driving skills... :scared:

5. He's too old to be driving.
I remember an old man, who used to come in a restaurant I work at all the time, that creamed the crap out of a car in the parking lot one day backing up, then drove home. We saw him do it. One waitress knew him amd his family well, so she called him at home to ask why he did that.

He claimed he didn't know he had hit anything.

30. Age is relative!
Don't box & label it!
WHen was 51, I moved I had to take all the driving tests over again. The state trooper told me my eyesight and reflexes were comensurate with someone 20 years younger!
My Uncle had to convince my Grandfather that he shouldn't drive anymore..he was 91 or 92 at the time. So he drove well until at least the age of 90 91!

9. Novak needs to take a long, long vacation.
He should go to Hawaii and just sit on the beach and think about life for a while. He has served whatever purpose he may have had (?????) on the TV hate shows and should just take it easy and make peace with his maker and the universe.

84. Not Dick Cheney!
Dick could shoot the pedestrian in the face before hitting him and drowning him in a bath tub and still not have to give a statement until he sobered up the next day.

And then the pedestrian would be expected to apologize for being in front of Dick's car.

Cheney was "reportedly" shit-face drunk when he shot the guy in the face in Texas. He fled the scene to avoid questioning and law enforcement never pursued it. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20... Now Novak runs over a Pedestrian and says he "didnt even know it?" Ya, sure. When I get stopped, can I tell the cops I'm Republican and the Rule of Law doesn't apply to me? I'm sure it will work.

28. Witness: No way Novak didnt know he hit someone; victim was splayed across the front of his car
Politico reports that conservative pundit Robert Novak was cited by police after he hit a pedestrian with his black Corvette in downtown Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning. Novak initially drove away from the scene, but turned around when a bicyclist stopped him and said, You hit someone. Novak claimed: I didnt know I hit anybody. But Washington DCs local ABC affiliate interviewed the bicyclist who saw the incident. WJLAs Suzanne Kennedy reported live from the scene:

I just spoke with the bicyclist about three minutes ago. He tells me that the pedestrian was actually splayed across the front of Novaks convertible, and that there would be absolutely no way Novak would have not known that he had hit someone.

Watch it:

34. Same story as Jack Cafferty
except Jack hit a bicyclist, and pedestrians chased him for a block or so.

Novak is notoriously tight with his money, so if he's sued, he'll probably try to settle and avoid the publicity.

104. Perhaps he felt compelled to teach that "jaywalker" a lesson.
His role as a filthy right-wing propagandist and his commission of treason against his country, clearly illustrate the degree of compunction with which he operates.

Such a ridiculous old fool.

82. As a motorcyclist
I look out for stories like this. Unfortunately, in this country, if you kill someone on a motorcycle you will, at best, get a slap on the wrist. The old "I didn't see him" defense. Until we start throwing people in jail for this crap, americans will continue to drive around not paying attention to anything. Every time I see someone yakking on the phone while driving, I want to reach in the window and punch the living daylights out of them, because the law will do nothing to them.

(How does he know it was a him)?


Finally, Bono said, Novak put his head out the window of his car and motioned him over. Bono said he told him that you can't hit a pedestrian and just drive away. He quoted Novak as responding: I didnt see him there.

(snip)

The bicyclist was David Bono, a partner at Harkins Cunningham, who was on his usual bike commute to work at 1700 K St. N.W. when he witnessed the accident.

42. this was a hit and run
Reading the accounts of several eyewitnesses, there seems no doubt that Novak committed a hit and run. The victim was splayed on top of Novak's windshield. Then the bicyclist had to FORCE Novak to stop by placing his bike in front of the car and shouting at him.

Read what this cold-hearted s.o.b had to say about the victim: "He's not dead, that's the main thing." God what a creep!

55. THROW HIM IN JAIL FOR HIT & RUN! after reading your post,
I am nauseous that this SOB is out! He hit the guy who flew across his hood of his low to the ground convertible corvette, then drove away - and then said, "he's not dead, that's the main thing"...

Bobby needs thrown in jail and told he should feel fortunate and - "you're not dead - that's the main thing!"

49. Novak
OK, Bob, It's time now to pack it up and go home. You are old, and no longer credible; there was the CNN hissey fit, the outing of CIA agent, Plame, and now the McCain campaign used you as a fool, and your miserable driving record is in the public eye. It may be too late to leave with dignity - that was gone years ago - so just do it as a favor to everyone as a final gesture.

86. Remember what Joe Wilspn says about he and his ilk...
(Paraphrasing) - they lie about EVERYTHING, even the smallest thing, it is like practice

51. Hats off to the fellow who held him for police, buuuut . . . .
Really doubt if any legal action will be taken against Novak . . . you know the current trend, if you are a Republican and you have money Laws are not meant for you.

He's usually having his nap in a crypt.

Should have been tested for alcohol. He may have thought the guy he hit was an admiring fan of his.

69. After watching that video
I can't believe the police didn't at least test him for alcohol. Either that or take him to the hospital for observation because he definately looked out of it. I hope the pedestrian is ok. As for Novak, I hope he gets the treatment that he obviously needs as well as a suspended driver's license so that those of us who walk on K Street can feel safer.

71. He was in a hurry to get to his Fixed News Channel interview!
He does have one of those virtually every day you know!!! LOL!! P.S. He is not prominent. He is not a commentator nor is he a journalist. But he is a traitor. Oh....Mr. Novak....By the way....The Corvette is not going to make you look attractive and you are way too old to be having a midlife crisis. I'm just saying..... I hope the poor fellow you ran over will be driving your Corvette and will get a big chunk of the money you made by stabbing your fellow Americans in the back.

73. Robert "establishment conservative" Novak drives a Vette?
Isn't that all you really need to know about him to know JUST what kind of asshole he is? He must have an even smaller dick than we all knew.

Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 03:37 PM by superconnected
and said he didn't know he hit a pedestrian. Sorry, but don't they have to be in front of your car to hit them. Wouldn't you kind of notice that you hit someone, even if they did appear from a place you didn't see, to be hit.

76. That is sad.....
I wonder if the citing officer had one of those riot equipment Plexiglas face Shields on when talking to Novak?

As bad as Novak slobbers...wouldn't have been a bad idea. Do they come with windshield wipers? :shrug:

Anyway condolences to the poor chap and his family.

77. DON'T Be too hard on him. He was probably taking dictation from the WH over his cell phone for his
next column. He wanted to make sure and get every word right.

78. I'll bet his first thought was of the potential scandal...
or the money it would cost to keep things quiet.

Hearing him talk on TV, I wasn't impressed by any concern for the victim. If he cared, why wasn't his ass at the hospital, checking on the man's condition?

79. I have walked in DC before.....
it is one of the most pedestrian friendly cities I have ever been in. You have 60 seconds to cross the intersection and most lights even let you know how many seconds you have left. There are homeless folks, but I didn't see many where I was. PEDESTRIANS DO HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY. Hope the pedestrian is ok. My first suspicion is a cell phone. Should be interesting.

107. I thought "The Prince of Darkness" was Richard Perle. *sigh*
But I've heard Robert Novak called that, as well. We just have too damn many of them... :-(

And doesn't he feel like an idiot, at his age, driving a Corvette convertible? :shrug:

Did you see the interview with the reporter on "The Daily Show" who said a witness said he couldn't have possibly have missed the accident victim splayed across the hood of his car?! Jesus... x(

81. Well, if revealing the identity of a CIA agent doesn't get him jailed,
a runover of Joe Nobody sure as hell won't.

Treason is now a sacrament and maiming/torturing the Average Joe is now a sport.
