A sedan crossed over a road median and slammed head-on into an OmniRide bus, killing two occupants in the sedan and leaving a third hospitalized in critical condition, police said.
There were no passengers aboard the OmniRide bus at the time of the crash, which occurred near Garfield High School just after 8:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5 in Woodbridge.
According to Prince William County police, the driver of a 2014 Toyota Corolla was traveling at a high rate of speed northbound on Smoketown Road heading toward Prince William Parkway when the vehicle crossed over the median and into oncoming traffic. A 2004 PRTC motor-coach bus traveling southbound on Smoketown Road was unable to avoid the collision and struck the sedan head-on. The bus then left the roadway striking a light pole and metal fence on Gar-field High School property.
The collision caused down power lines leading to a power outage in the immediate vicinity of the crash.
Two people in the Corolla were killed: driver Pablo Enrique Angulo, 24, of Woodbridge, and passenger Prince Arthur, 19, of Woodbridge. The injured passenger in the Corolla was identified as a 21-year-old Woodbridge man.
The bus operator was not injured in the crash. OmniRide said it is fully cooperating with investigators.
