RIVERDALE, Ga. (AP) — A car crashed into an Atlanta public transit bus Wednesday morning and shut down a busy intersection for hours.
Riverdale police and the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority told news outlets that a driver ran a red light and their car hit the bus. The two vehicles then crashed into a utility pole in the suburb south of Atlanta.
The bus driver, a MARTA passenger and the driver of the car were taken to a hospital, news outlets reported. The extent of their injuries wasn’t specified.
Marcus Brown, who takes a MARTA bus daily, saw the scene of the crash when he was on his way to catch the bus for work.
“When I woke this morning, I heard a loud noise it sounded like a transformer had blew up,” Brown told WSB-TV. “It shocked me. The first thing I think is I hope everybody is OK.”
The bus had significant damage to its front end and the car ended up on its side, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
