WASHINGTON — Metro Transit Police officials are investigating how a 19-year-old D.C. man was able to steal a Metrobus, crash it into a tree and ultimately abandon the bus when officers stopped the vehicle. Police said they arrested the man on Friday and charged him with unauthorized use of a vehicle and fleeing an accident. No injuries were reported.

According to preliminary reports, the man is not a Metro employee but entered a bus facility wearing a bus driver’s uniform and drove a bus out of the lot. He allegedly drove the bus about three miles before crashing into a tree in southeast Washington and continued driving it several blocks until Metro police stopped the vehicle after a 911 call about the accident.
