Metrobus drivers are concerned over safety after supervisors forced them to leave the bus garage before finishing their required safety checks Wednesday.
A grand jury has indicts Metrobus driver Ronald Taylor with negligent homicide for deadly crash he was involved in back in 2008. He allegedly ran a red light in Foggy Bottom, and striking a taxicab that was carrying Bartlett Tabor, a businessman from California. Tabor died in the crash. He was reinstated in 2010.
But this isn't the first crime on Taylor's record.
According to online court documents, the bus driver incurred gun and drug charges from the 1980s and early '90s before he was ever hired by Metro.
The transit agency is now looking into why Taylor was hired despite those earlier charges, and why he was reinstated last year after his involvement in the 2008 crash.
CORRECTION: The original version of this story misstated the nature of the 2008 accident. Taylor's bus hit a minivan carrying the victim.
