Metro on Wednesday fired a bus driver who struck a pedestrian last month in Southeast D.C. The incident occurred on April 13, shortly before 8:50 p.m., as the W2 Route Metrobus was turning right from Irving Street onto Alabama Avenue, according to Metro. The pedestrian was taken to a hospital; the person’s status was not available Wednesday. The driver, whose name was not released, was put on paid administrative leave during the investigation into the crash, but was found to have failed “to follow standard operating procedures,” said Metro spokesman Reggie Woodruff.
