Two school buses collided, headlight to headlight, Thursday afternoon.
Sheila Taylor came out of her house right after she heard the crash.
"The small bus was real crushed, the windshield was cracked and my son was here and he gave them paper towels and stuff. The little girl's nose was bleeding, and he opened up back door cause it was hot in there," she says.
There were no life-threatening injuries, but nine people, including five students, were sent to the hospital. Two adults were in serious condition.
D.C. Police aren't saying which schools the buses were carrying students from, but one of the buses was from Prince George's County, Md., and the other from D.C. Neighbor Patricia Davis says she doesn't know how it could have happened, but it looked like the D.C. bus was in the wrong lane.
"When I came out of the house, I saw two buses and I was like, 'Wow, what did he do with this bus how did he get this bus on the other side?'" Davis says.
D.C. police are investigating how that happened.
