The buses crashed Thursday afternoon on Eastern Avenue near Booth Lane. The area has since been opened.

D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Pete Piringer says the two buses crashed headlight to headlight. They were carrying elementary-school aged children. Nine people were sent to hospitals, five of them were students. There were no life-threatening injuries, though the two adults have what they're calling "serious" injuries. They are thought to be the bus drivers. They were conscious and alert.

D.C. Police aren't saying how this could have happened or what school the children came from, but residents nearby say the D.C. school bus veered into oncoming traffic.
