A Metrobus crashed into a tree on East-West Highway near Grubb Road in Silver Spring late Monday afternoon, according to Montgomery County fire and rescue spokesperson Pete Piringer.

According to Piringer, one person was trapped and had to be rescued. He said paramedics were treating over a dozen patients at the scene.

Piringer said the crash was classified as a mass casualty incident (MCI) because of the number of patients.

A portion of East-West Highway near Grubb Road was closed because of the collision during rush hour and traffic was backed up.
