The person who caught the video on his phone stated that he was walking by the Potomac River and noticed two police boats. When the first one took off with sirens blaring, he started filming the second boat just in time to catch it crashing.

The article also clarified that the damaged civilian boat was docked at Washington Harbor in Georgetown.
