SILVER SPRING, Md. (WJLA) -- Nine people were injured Monday morning when a Montgomery County RideOn bus crashed into a home in Silver Spring, police say.

Authorities say the bus crashed into a house in the 9400 block of Avenel Drive in Silver Spring at about 10:49 a.m. The bus was trying to make a right turn off of nearby Stateside Drive and onto Avenel when the bus left the roadway and hit a taxicab parked in a driveway, then ran into the house.
