Five people were injured after a car collided with a Metrobus in Northeast Washington early Saturday morning, fire officials said.
The crash occurred near the intersection of Ninth Street and Massachusetts Avenue about 2:50 a.m., fire officials said. D.C. police said an investigation showed the car ran a red light and hit the bus, but a police spokeswoman did not have information about whether speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
Firefighters had to extract two people trapped in the car, which suffered extensive damage.
One of the injured was taken to a hospital in critical condition, along with a second with serious injuries and two others with minor injuries, fire officials said. A fifth person was treated on the scene for minor injuries.
