Metro investigates bus crash

By Eric Athas

[This post has been updated to correct the Web address of Unsuck DC Metro.]

Metro is investigating a Thursday crash involving a bus and a parked truck in Northeast Washington that was captured on video and posted on a blog, a Metro spokeswoman said.

The B2 bus collided with the truck near Bladensburg Road and L Street, said spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein.

The video, posted on the Web site unsuckdcmetro.com unsuckdcmetro.blogspot.com showed one bus halted near the truck, and another bus pulling up alongside the first. After a time, the first bus appears to move forward and strike the rear of the truck. No injuries were reported.

Again, the correct name of the site is:

UNSUCKDCMETRO.BLOGSPOT.COM

Thanks.

On top of getting their go-to #WMATA news source wrong AGAIN it seems this "article" was written by two people. We have Ann Scott Tyson, who really seems to have a problem getting unsuckdcmetro's site correct and an extra byline for Eric Athas. Huh.

Here's an idea, howzabout the Post just gives unsuckdcmetro full credit for writing all of these articles?

12 hours after it was first reported that this article incorrectly cites the web site's name, it is still not corrected. What's up?

Both drivers should be fired.

Current policy is that the driver is not supposed to pass another bus and stop short to let a passenger out in the street. (A pedestrian was killed not to long ago because of an out of service bus passing a stopped bus.) And clearly, the other driver did not make sure he or she had a clear pass - they seemed to try to rush it in advance of a potential passenger getting off of the outer bus.

48 hours to fix the article. Well, still faster than Metro and its escalators.
