Metro probes alleged bus hit-and-run

Metro is investigating tyson.gifa reported incident in which a Metro bus allegedly rear-ended a car carrying three people at the intersection of Fairfax Drive and Glebe Road in Ballston on Tuesday afternoon and then left the scene.

"This incident was reported; a Metrobus supervisor responded; and we are investigating," Metro spokesman Reggie Woodruff said in an e-mail.

The website ARL Now first reported the incident. It said the driver of the car, Jeffrey Nichols-Haining, saw the bus bearing down on his vehicle from the rear-view mirror before it struck the car, and then turned and drove off.

We all know how this will end: the driver will "receive retraining".

Please keep us updated on how this story plays out! Based on the witness accounts given, it is disturbing that this bus driver hasn't been charged with the hit and run. At least that might give Metro something to work with in dealing with the union.
