“Well, that right there seems to be the problem”
Fortunately, no one was killed:
An 18-year-old pedestrian was struck after a car crashed into a bus stop in Kensington, Md. Saturday, the Montgomery County Fire Department said.
The accident occurred at a bus stop located at Connecticut Avenue and Knowles Avenue. Fire officials say the car hit two pedestrians waiting for a bus and overturned, trapping the driver of the vehicle.
Two people were injured in the accident and were taken to the hospital. The pedestrian has serious but non-life threatening injuries, according to Paul Starks with Montgomery County Police. She has a fractured leg, authorities said….
No drugs or alcohol were factors in the accident. Police believe the man may have had a medical incident.
The driver has not been charged, however was given traffic tickets.
Another report claims the driver appeared to be intoxicated (the fire and police departments offered potentially conflicting explanations).
Either way, this isn’t an accident. Someone’s leg was broken, which is hardly a spilled cup of coffee. It’s all the more galling that people waiting for the bus were hit. If it turns out it was truly a medical incident, there still need to be some repercussions–more than just a few tickets.
