Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams was rear-ended in his car while doing an on-air interview for a local radio station, and he kept his composure like a champ.
Williams was doing his weekly Wednesday morning spot on 106.7 The Fan while on his way to the Nationals Park, when he suddenly stopped the interview and told the hosts that he had just been involved in an accident. Here’s how the conversation went:
“Sorry guys, I just had an accident … I got a police officer behind me and this guy’s going to try to escape … The guy’s running. He just ran right in the back of me,” Williams said.
“I just got rear-ended by a guy in a car,” He continued. “Hold on. This guy’s crashing into people.”
“Are you okay?” the radio host 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 … He tried to get out of his car, and then he got around me, and then they’re continuing to chase him.”
