On Wednesday morning, Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams was rear-ended by another motorist while doing his weekly radio hit on 106.7 The Fan.

This is pretty wild. There must be something about DC sports personalities, the radio, and their vehicles, because a few months ago, Clinton Portis got a speeding ticket live on the air. Williams was in the middle of a conversation, and he just happened to get blasted by another driver, who then proceeded to flee while being pursued by police – all while Williams narrated the incident to the radio show.

Well, you don’t see that happen every day. I like how after a couple of minutes of narrating the accident, Williams tries to transition back to baseball. That’s commitment.
