Metrobus involved in crash

[This post has been updated to reflect more accurate information provided by ARLnow]

One person was injured Monday afternoon in an accident involving a Metrobus and a vehicle in Arlington, officials said.

About 20 people were on the bus at the time of the crash at South Glebe Road and Interstate 395, said Reggie Woodruff, a Metro spokesman.

The Metrobus was rear-ended struck on the side at about 4:20 p.m. by another vehicle, Woodruff said. One of the other vehicle's occupants suffered non-life-threatening injuries, he said, but it was unclear how severe the injuries were. No one on the 23A line Metrobus reported any other injuries, Woodruff said.

This article is incorrect. ARLNOW.com reports and has pictures showing that the accident involved a pickup truck that ran into the side of the metro bus. http://www.arlnow.com/2010/10/04/two-sent-to-hospital-after-pickup-truck-collides-with-metrobus/
