Owner of limo torched in DC says insurance unlikely to pay

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Protesters set a parked limousine on fire in downtown Washington, Friday, Jan. 20, 2017, during the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

WASHINGTON >> The president of the company that owned a limousine set on fire during an Inauguration Day protest in Washington says insurance likely won’t cover the damage.

Muhammad Ashraf, the president of the Virginia-based Nationwide Chauffeured Services, said Monday that replacing the car could cost tens of thousands of dollars. He says insurance would cover vandalism but may not cover his situation because the car was damaged in a riot.

More than 230 people were arrested after self-described anti-capitalists began breaking business’ windows Friday.

Ashraf said the limousine’s driver had taken a client to The Washington Post when the vehicle was attacked and set on fire. Ashraf says he can’t imagine why people had to do it.

A GoFundMe page was set up to help the company.

  • They’re not just people, they’re Libtards! Should go to the PD department and press charges against those that were arrested then sue them in court.

  • Unfortunately, this political climate caused this. These people were incited by some anti source. They had free reign, knowing the Police couldn’t handle the load. This falls on those that fight government but take whatever they can from the system.

  • Pity, as there’s every chance Ashraf didn’t vote for Trump. Worse, you’d think any half-bright rioter, anarchist or left-leaning arsonist would’ve given anything parked in front of the Washington Post a pass.
