Martin Weil of the Washington Post reports that a "woman was struck by a Metrobus and critically injured Monday night in the Trinidad area of Northeast Washington," according to WMATA authorities.  The report states that the woman is alive, but in critical condition after having been transported to Washington Hospital Center.

According to the report, a Metro spokesperson said that "the woman had just gotten off the D-8 Metrobus on Mount Olivet Road NE, between Trinidad and Montello avenues. She apparently crossed in front of that bus and then was struck about 6:30 p.m. by another Metrobus traveling in the same direction."

This incident is one in a string of incidents involving Metro buses this year.  We hope that the injured woman makes a speedy and full recovery.
