WASHINGTON — A Metrobus and chartered school bus collided in D.C. Thursday, sending dozens of elementary school students to the hospital.
The buses crashed at the intersection of Eastern Avenue and Randolph Street in Northeast D.C. — near the border with Prince George’s County — around 4:30 p.m.
Forty-three students were transported to Children’s Hospital with minor injuries, said D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Doug Buchannan. Three adults — including the driver of the school bus — also were taken to the hospital with more serious injuries, Buchannan added.
The crash caused one of the buses to leak fuel and a hazardous materials crew is at the scene working to clean it up.
Officials have not released any additional details about the crash at this time, including what led to the collision.
