Western Avenue NW in Washington, DC

Received Thursday, February 22, 2007
February 21 on Western Ave NW Washington DC approx 3:30 pm. African american nanny, 5'5" stocky wearing an animal print jacket, black shoulder length bob haircut. She was walking with a little girl with a light colored hat with dark blonde hair, pink jacket, snow boots, 3 maybe 4 years old. She was carrying a stuffed animal of some sort as she was walking. The two of them were walking in the street. This is a busy street and quite busy at this time. The little girl was holding the nannies' hand but was leaning out into traffic as she was walking. I drove by and watched as multiple cars had to swerve out of the way to avoid hitting the little girl. I should add that I realize the sidealks were icy but the least the nanny could have done was walk with the child close to the sidewalk and place herself between traffic and the child
