Police blocked traffic at the intersection of 22nd and G streets for about two hours Monday after a bus hit a moving car.

The Martz bus and a black Audi sedan were both turning on 22nd Street toward G Street when the accident happened around 3:30 p.m., Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Rachel Schaerr said. MPD and University Police Department officers responded to the scene and closed vehicular traffic on G Street in front of Funger Hall.

The accident caused property damage, but there were no injuries, Schaerr said.

UPD officers directed traffic toward 22nd Street until about 5:30 p.m., when the car was towed.

The woman driving the car declined to give her name or a comment on the accident, citing insurance reasons.
