2-bus collision leaves driver trapped
UPDATE 4p.m.: A spokesman for the fire department says a tour bus collided head-on with a second bus that was parked or stationary.
Both drivers were severely injured. The pinned driver was extricated after 45 minutes and flown by helicopter to the hospital. A fireboat was also on hand.
It appears that no passengers were on the buses.
ORIGINAL POST: DC Fire officials say that two buses collided on Ohio Drive SW near the Tidal Basin and the mall shortly before 11a.m., leaving both drivers injured and at least one driver of the flat-nosed buses pinned by his legs, the Post's Theola Labbe'-DeBose reports.
The passengers were apparently able to exit on their own, but officials requested a helicopter, which would land on one of the baseball fields near the Washington Monument, for the drivers.
Be prepared for delays in the area.
