Collision with bus flips car on side [PHOTOS] [UPDATED]
An accident involving a car, an SUV, and a Metro Transit bus temporarily shut down 3rd Ave. where it intersects with Washington during rush hour this morning.
The collision flipped the SUV on its side at a right angle to the bus, which was temporarily out of service as emergency crews worked to clean up the mess. An ambulance and a fire truck were on scene.
A reader just wrote in with this tip:

This was the scene outside Dunn Bros. coffee shop at around 9 a.m. this morning:
