1 Dead After Shuttle Bus Crash

1 Dead After Shuttle Bus Crash, A shuttle bus struck a guardrail and overturned before dawn Sunday along busy Interstate 95 south of the nation’s capital, leaving one person dead and sending 16 others to the hospital, Virginia State Police said.

The bus was headed south on the heavily traveled East Coast artery when witnesses reported seeing a white, speeding four-door passenger vehicle swerve into the bus’s travel lane. The bus then swerved to the right to avoid the sedan, ran off the road, struck the guardrail and overturned, Virginia State Police said.

Troopers say the driver of the white sedan was later arrested and charged with one felony count of hit-and-run. The Virginia State Police identified him as 31-year-old Raphael Manuel Barrientos of Dumfries, Va. A woman who answered the phone at a telephone number for his home declined to comment.
