Bizarre hit-and-run interrupts Matt Williams' live radio interview

Have you ever watched a high-speed chase in an action movie, and thought to yourself, "You know, that guy keeps side-swiping and rear-ending all those civilians. Wouldn't that be really surreal if that happened in real life?"

Well, Nationals manager Matt Williams got to experience that surreality first-hand during an interview with 106.7 The Fan on Wednesday morning.

Take a listen:

Williams: Sorry guys, I just had an accident.
The Fan: Oh boy. You okay?
Williams: I've got a police officer behind me. This guy's gonna try to escape.
The Fan: Uh oh, we've got breaking news.
Williams: The guy's running.
The Fan: Hold on -- did you just witness the accident, or were you in the accident?
Williams: He just ran right into the back of me.
The Fan: Oh, you got rear-ended.
Williams: I just got rear-ended by a guy in a car. Hold on. This guy's crashing into people.

So, that happened.

Williams was perfectly fine (you can hear him discuss the ordeal in the video up top), but police had to go all out to catch this fellow -- even calling in a helicopter to aid in the chase.

"That's the strangest thing I've ever been a part of right there," said Williams after the Grand Theft Auto-esque action had settled down. 

I disagree, Matt:
