A driver is charged with murder after his SUV slammed into a downtown D.C. park, killing two people, police say.
Jeoffrey Richard Williams, 57, of D.C., has been charged with two counts of second degree murder, U.S. Park Police say.
Jesus Antonio Llanes-Datil, 63, and Thomas Dwight Spriggs, 42, were sitting in a park at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and 21st Street NW around 11:30 p.m. on July 10, police said.
Williams, driving a Yukon XL SUV, veered off Pennsylvania Avenue and careened through the park, striking both victims, police said at the time.

The victim’s father said she was “minding her own business and somebody just decided to attack her.”
According to the Washington Post, Magill’s screams of “Oh, no!” and “Help me!” alarmed a couple inside a nearby home. They saw her laying on the sidewalk, covered in blood, and attempted to revive her.
Magill later died at a hospital.
District police say 24-year-old Eliyas Aregahegne was arrested that night at an area apartment and charged Wednesday with first-degree murder while armed. Police didn’t immediately release a motive, but said sexual assault and robbery have been ruled out and there’s no connection between the Magill and Aregahegne.

Some of D.C.’s finest food resides in alleys and basements
Some of D.C.’s best-known restaurants are fairly hidden. The biggest signs of Little Serow (in a basement) and Michelin-starred Sushi Taro (above a CVS) are the lines that form around 5 p.m. every day on their block of 17th Street NW. Maydan sits in an industrial-looking alleyway that looks like that scene in The Sting where Loretta tries to shoot Robert Redford’s character.
