Bus crashes into townhouse
A Ride On bus crashed into a townhouse in the Gaithersburg area of Montgomery County Sunday afternoon, causing damage serious enough to call in building inspectors and have the residents of the home find other accommodations, authorities said.
No one was injured in the crash, which occurred just after 3:30 p.m. on Anna Court, said Capt. Dave Falcinelli of the Montgomery County Police Department. He said the bus was traveling on Girard Street when it left the road, went into the backyard of the home on Anna Court and hit the house's corner. The bus was not carrying any passengers, and neither the bus driver nor the people in the home were hurt, Falcinelli said.
Investigators are still probing why the vehicle left the roadway, Falcinelli said.
Falcinelli said the damage done to the house was significant enough that the residents were displaced while inspectors examined it, but “it’s not like it entered the house.” He said the Red Cross was helping the residents find other living accommodations.
