4 injured in Metrobus crash

WASHINGTON – A Metrobus collided with a car closing off access from Interstate 66 to the Dulles Toll Road at the start of the Friday evening rush.

Access to Route 267/Dulles Toll Road was blocked for almost two hours. Police reopened the left lane leading to Route 267 about 5:50 p.m.

Four people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after the 4:10 p.m. wreck, Virginia State Police say.

Police say the bus hit a Mitsubishi sedan in the westbound lanes of I-66 at Route 267/Dulles Toll Road. The bus stopped off the road, against a guard rail.

More than 30 people were on the bus at the time and two passengers were taken by ambulance to Reston Hospital. The bus driver and the driver of the Mitsubishi were also taken to Reston Hospital, police say.

Another Metrobus picked up the remaining uninjured passengers about 5 p.m.
