14 Injured in NW D.C. Metrobus Crash

Fourteen people were taken to the hospital Friday morning after a Metrobus and a car collided in northwest Washington.

The bus was traveling northbound on North Capitol Street NW when it hit a car going eastbound on Rhode Island Avenue NW.

Metro says the driver of the car ran the red light, causing the accident. But a passenger on the bus told News4's Mark Segraves that from her perspective the driver of the bus was trying to get through a yellow light that was turning red.

Thirteen passengers on the bus and the driver of the car were taken to the hospital. None of the injuries reported are life-threatening.

The driver of the bus was not injured.

No charges have been filed at this time.
