Two adults and 20 teenage students were taken to area hospitals for checkups after a Metrobus and a car crashed on Interstate 395, according to a D.C. fire official.

Fire Department spokesman Pete Piringer said Tuesday morning that the crash occurred near Maine Avenue SW when the bus rear-ended the car while trying to avoid another vehicle that merged into the bus's lane.

Piringer said none of the injuries were serious.

The students reportedly were going to the Duke Ellington School of the Arts.

The bus driver was evaluated but not transported.

Traffic was backed up for several miles in the area, including on Minnesota Avenue.

There's no word on whether anyone has been or will be cited in the incident.
