Did not see the actual accident, but when I got off the McPherson Square Metro, there had been an accident between a car and a bus at 14th and H Street, NW. The car was in the curb lane at the corner on the northbound side of 14th Street and the bus was parked on H Street. The car had a lot of damage to the front. When I walked by, no police or other vehicles had arrived on the scene. Hope all are OK.

Didn't this happen last night?

That was a cool video. Too bad it shuts off right as the fire engine arrives! I would have liked to see how quickly the flames were put out.
