An Odenton man was killed and nearly a dozen people were injured when a car crashed into a Maryland Transit Administration bus and burst into flames, police said.
A press release from Anne Arundel police identified 27-year-old Marcus Anderson as the driver of a car that hit the #14 MTA transit bus head-on on Saturday night. A 14-year-old passenger in Anderson’s car was taken to a hospital with minor injuries. Neither of them was wearing a seatbelt.
The crash happened at about 9:47 p.m. along 8th Avenue, just west of Crain Highway.
Police stated that Anderson’s car was traveling east when it crossed the center line and into oncoming traffic. His car was pushed back by the bus more than 40 feet, causing it to catch fire.
The driver of the bus and eight of the ten passengers on board were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
