Man, 18, in hospital after he was hit, dragged by bus in Pr. William

An 18-year-old man from California was taken to the hospital Monday night after he was hit by a bus and dragged about 50 feet while crossing a Woodbridge street, Prince William County police said.

The man, who was not named by police, was flown to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police responded to the intersection of Gideon Drive and Dale Boulevard at around 9:33 p.m., police said, where the man had been crossing the street when he was hit by a motorcoach.

The man was trapped under the bus and dragged about 50 feet, according to police.

The tour bus driver, a 48-year-old woman from Florida, has not been charged, police said. The investigation is ongoing.

METRO should offer the bus driver a job w/ WMATA. She has the makings of a great METRO employee.

I am not shocked. It is amazing how foolishly people cross roads around here. I live near this intersection and drive through it frequently. I have had a few close calls with pedestrians, often dressed darkly, just dashing into traffic and hoping the cars will stop. It is one of the worst areas along Dale Boulevard along with any spot with a bus stop, or near an intersection, or basically anywhere along this road.
