8th Street SE was blocked off for a portion of the morning May 11 after a Metrobus got into an accident that injured several passengers.
An accident involving a Metrobus on 8th Street SE has left several people injured.
Ambulances transported six patients from the accident on the 400 block of 8th Street SE, and seven other patients were transported to the hospital on a mass casualty bus, according to a D.C. Fire & EMS Battalion Chief Brian Lee.
All of those transported were done so mainly for observation, and had only minor injuries, according to Lee.
The accident occurred when a Metrobus stopped short to avoid hitting a car that made a right turn in front of it on 8th Street SE. As a result of the short stop, several passengers were jolted when the bus lurched forward.
Metro Transit Police and the Metropolitan Police Department will continue to investigate.
