WASHINGTON — A D.C. police officer was clinging to life last night after a freak mishap during a Good Friday procession on a Northwest Washington street, authorities said.

Officer Wayne Pitt was blocking traffic for the parade of worshipers shortly after 9 p.m. Friday when he realized that a motor scooter was about to breach a police line at Mount Pleasant and Lamont streets, police said.
 
Pitt, 57, got out of his police cruiser to stop the scooter operator but realized that he had left his car in gear, police said.

What followed is still under investigation.
