Students taken to hospitals after bus crash

Five people were injured, including three children, in a crash Monday morning involving a mini-bus headed to a Northwest D.C. school.

The accident occurred on Nebraska Avenue Northwest at the corner of Van Ness Street Northwest at about 7:42 a.m. The bus, which was driving students to the Field School, was involved in a crash with three other vehicles, according to police.

Three children, the bus driver and the driver of another vehicle were transported to local hospitals by ambulance in stable condition, according to D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Battalion Chief Brian Lee. Another 16 students were taken by bus to hospitals as a precautionary measure.

All of the students have been released from the hospitals, and all but one of them returned to school later in the day, a Field School official said. The bus driver has also been released.

Tires slashed at Herndon complex

At least 64 vehicles parked at an Herndon apartment complex had their tires slashed over the weekend, police said.

The tires were damaged between 11 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. on Sunday at the Dulles Greene apartment complex.

Surveillance video shows three males who entered the complex that night. One was heavyset and wearing light-colored clothing, one was wearing dark-colored basketball shorts and one was wearing dark-colored clothing.
