9 D.C. students suffer minor injuries in 2 bus crashes on first day of school
The District’s first day of school got off to a bumpy start with two early morning school bus crashes, according to police.
No one was seriously injured in either of the crashes, but a total of nine students, a school bus driver and a school aide had to be checked out for minor injuries, according to the fire department. A spokeswoman for D.C. Public Schools said the buses involved were headed to charter schools but she was unable to confirm which schools.
The multiple-vehicle crash occurred around 9 a.m. at the intersection of Pierce and North Capitol streets in Northeast, according police and fire officials. A Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman initially said that three students were taken to the hospital for observation, but D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services spokesman Tim Wilson said no one was transported from the scene.
MPD spokeswoman Tisha Gant could not provide more details of the crash or say how many students were on board at the time.
A second crash between a bus and another vehicle was reported around 9:15 a.m. at 14th and Monroe streets in Northeast. Six students, the driver, and a student aide had minor injuries checked out by emergency workers at the scene, Mr. Wilson said.
The cause of the crash was not clear, according to police.
