(Updated at 4:20 p.m.) An Arlington Transit bus has careened into the Barton Street community garden after a crash near Courthouse.
The crash happened around 3:05 p.m. at the intersection of 10th Street N. and N. Barton Street.
At least two vehicles were involved: a sedan, which suffered heavy front-end damage, and an ART bus, which knocked over a light pole and street signs before coming to rest in the middle of the garden.
A passenger told ARLnow that the bus had a green light and was coming down the hill on Barton when it was struck by the sedan. The sedan’s driver was cited by officers for running a red light, Arlington County Police spokeswoman Ashley Savage said.
Passengers could be heard comforting the bus driver after the crash, saying it “could have happened to anyone.”
No serious injuries were reported, though one female passenger said her arm hurt. Drivers should expect lane closures on 10th Street and slow traffic in the area while crews work to clean up the crash scene.
The crash follows an incident on Tuesday in which an ART bus crashed into a building after rolling through a rental truck depot.
