Accident Reconstruction

Regarding the June 16 Metro article "Metro Chief Cuts Barry a Break, Then a Check":

Was D.C. Council member Marion Barry parked illegally when a Metrobus sideswiped his car on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue last June? The article noted that "while Metro was investigating," a repair shop said "it would cost $2,234, labor and parts included, to replace the passenger side mirror and door panels" on Mr. Barry's vehicle.

The passenger side? If the car was parked on the correct side of this two-way street, shouldn't it have been hit on the driver's side?
