Inaugural Charter Bus Stuck Under Bridge
Tourists -- sometimes you can't take them anywhere without an embarrassing mishap!
A double-decker charter bus from New York that was in D.C. for inauguration weekend got stuck under the CSX rail bridge near the Fort Totten Metro station in the 200 block of Galloway St., NE, just after noon today, District authorities said.
When crews from the city's Fire and Emergency Medical Services agency responded to the scene, they found 40 passengers who had disembarked the bus; none were injured, agency spokesman Alan Etter said. The bus driver had successfully backed out from under the bridge. Inspectors found no structural damage to the bridge, Etter said, and there was only cosmetic damage to the bus, which was returning to New York.
