In DC, Thomas Boswell reports two Nationals fans were killed Friday while riding the team's free shuttle bus from RFK Stadium to Nationals Park, when their "heads struck a freeway overpass." DC Police said that the two victims were "standing on the upper deck of the open-top bus, perhaps on the seats" (WASHINGTON POST, 7/14). The accident occurred around 8:45pm ET Friday night. The shuttle bus was part of a shuttle service the Nationals offer fans parking at the lots at RFK, "since parking around the new stadium is sparse" (MLB.com, 7/13).
