Disabled bus on Douglass Bridge snarls traffic to Beltway

A disabled bus in the center lane of the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge caused massive delays on D.C.’s South Capitol Street Tuesday morning.

Traffic was snarled from the Suitland Parkway to the Capital Beltway.

According to WTOP Traffic Reporter Jack Taylor, they couldn’t get the bus started, but a heavy wrecker towed it off the bridge around 8:30 a.m.

Traffic slowly returned to normal through the morning.
