Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams was involved in a police chase Wednesday morning while doing his weekly radio spot with 106.7 the Fan.

Williams was rear-ended by another driver who was trying to flee from the police. You can listen to audio of the invident below.

“Sorry guys, I just had an accident … I got a police officer behind me and this guy’s going to try to escape.”

“Really?” asked the host.

“The guy’s running. He just ran right in the back of me,” Williams said, still incredibly calm.

“I just got rear-ended by a guy in a car,” Williams said. “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.”

Williams said he was driving to the ballpark when the accident happened. For those wondering he drives a Tahoe.

“He tried to get out of his car, and then he got around me, and then they’re continuing to chase him,” Williams said.
