Metro station manager arrested, indicted after deadly 2008 bus crash

U.S. marshals arrested Metro station manager Ronald Taylor Thursday morning at the Cheverly station after a grand jury indicted him on charges of negligent homicide in a 2008 bus accident, according to Metro spokesman Steven Taubenkibel.

Taylor was driving a Metro bus that struck a taxi on Sept. 26, 2008, and killed a father of two children.

Metro believed Taylor ran a red light before the crash and fired him in October 2008. But a labor arbitrator disagreed, saying a witness account was not credible, and decided he should return to work.

Metro reinstated Taylor as a station manager in June. At the time, Metro officials said they wanted Taylor to serve in a “non-sensitive safety job.”

Taylor joined Metro in March of 2008. Currently, his status is “out of service without pay,” Taubenkibel said.
