Car slams into bus stop, injures 1 in District of Columbia

A two-car accident in Washington D.C. ended up involving a woman who was just trying to wait for the bus. She was sitting in a Metrobus stop when the accident occurred; specifically, she was in the shelter that is at F Street and 7th. Two cars collided on the street in front of her, though it is unclear exactly how the initial accident occurred.

What is clear, though, is that the car accident pushed one of the vehicles up, off of the street, and over the curb. It slammed front-first through the shelter where the woman was sitting, shattering the glass and scattering fragments all over the bricks. The woman was struck by the vehicle and injured.

Emergency crews took her to the hospital after she was removed from the scene. Her injuries were reported to be serious, but they did not seem to be life-threatening at the time. The police closed down the road on a temporary basis, but they were able to open it back up again shortly. They removed the car from the shelter, but pictures of it with its nose through the area where the glass had been were taken before they moved it.

Often, a car accident that leads to a personal injury is going to injure one of the people in the vehicle, but this accident shows how innocent bystanders can also be hurt. If this happens, they may have cause to start a personal injury case. It is their right to be safe while walking on the side of the road or waiting for the bus.
