Metrobus crashes into Jewelry Buyers in Wheaton

A Metrobus crashed into Jewelry Buyers at 2575 Ennalls Avenue in Wheaton around 9:30 AM yesterday morning, March 2, 2023. The bus drove through the storefront, and continued all the way into the store. No one was inside the store when the accident occurred, but three people were transported to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson Pete Piringer said. There were no passengers on the bus at the time of the accident.

According to Metro Transit Police, the bus was struck by a speeding white van whose driver allegedly made a reckless lane change. Police later charged the driver of the van with making an unsafe lane change, failing to control speed to avoid a collision, making an improper right turn, and failing to wear corrective lenses. Wild morning in the Wheaton Triangle!
