Metro Bus Crashes Into Wall in Downtown DC

Posted on Aug 15, 2016

This morning, the Washington Post, reported that a metro bus crashed into a wall along 16th Street in N.W. DC. 

The accident took place after 5:30 a.m. this morning in NW DC. It's reported that the metro bus collided with another vehicle on the road - it's not clear how the accident took place, but the article is reporting that one of the vehicles ran up on the sidewalk and hit a tree and a lightpost. The article has picutres of the metro bus right after hitting the wall. 

In the aftermath of the accident, the southbound side of 16th Street near Underwood Street was closed as a result.

Luckily, DC police confirmed that although there were four passengers on the bus at the time, none of them have reported serious injuries.
