The bus was finally pulled out of the KFC near the Glenmont Metro after more than five hours.

Workers trucked way the shattered windshield after they finally dislodged the bus from the KFC Friday. Police say the driver, 55, suffered from a currently unknown medical event that sent the bus on a wild ride, swerving through six lanes of traffic during the morning rush before it was stopped by the empty fast food restaurant on the 12400 block of Georgia Avenue.

The bus sat in the KFC next to the Glenmont Metro for more than five hours. One Montgomery County worker tells WAMU that a passenger was standing by the fare box during the accident.

The driver and one of the three passengers on board were transported to area hospitals. Police Lieutenant Edward Harhai says there are a lot of questions that remain unanswered.

"Our traffic officers are actively investigating it and they will be making any determinations and a follow up investigation," he says.

The bus has two cameras on board, though its unclear if their contents will be released publicly. As of this point the driver has not been charged with any criminal wrongdoing.
