Police say speed caused the Monday night crash on Smoketown Road that killed two people and left a third seriously injured.

The driver of a 2014 Toyota Corolla, identified as Pablo Enrique Angulo, 24, of Woodbridge, was traveling north on Smoketown Road “at a high rate of speed” when the car crossed over the median into oncoming traffic near Gar-Field High School at 8:34 p.m., police said.

A 2004 PRTC motor-coach bus traveling south on Smoketown Road was unable to avoid the collision and struck the sedan head-on, said Prince William County police Sgt. Jonathan Perok.

The bus then left the roadway, striking a light pole and metal fence on Gar-field High School property, downing power lines and causing a power outage in the area.

Angulo and his rear, driver’s side passenger, Prince Arthur, 19, of Woodbridge, died at the scene, Perok said.

A third passenger, identified as a 21-year-old Woodbridge man, suffered life-threatening injuries and remained hospitalized Tuesday.

The driver of the PRTC bus, a 31-year-old Woodbridge man, was not injured. There were no passengers on the bus at th time.
