ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA) -- On Wednesday morning at approximately 5:30, a Metro bus traveling on Rockville Pike near Tuckerman Lane crashed into a pole.
A man named Rob Kalb tweeted the following with a photo: "Utility work delaying the J5? Yes, from #Wmata own bus seemingly crossing the median, crashing into the utility pole"
@FixWMATA brought the tweet to our attention and we called Metro officials. Spokesman Dan Stessel reported that no one was on board the bus at the time of the crash. We later saw a tweet from @wmata about the incident saying "operator not seriously injured, but taken to hospital for observation."
Montgomery County Police says the bus has been removed.
