No one was seriously hurt, but the crash did cause some confusion. The accident happened at the intersection of Franklin Blvd. and Onyx St.
EPD and LTD are looking into who may have caused the crash, but at this point it seems to be a misunderstanding on the SUV driver’s part.
The driver of the SUV says he was trying to make a u-turn on Franklin. He says he thought the light turned green letting him know he could turn, but that may have been the light for the bus. So the EmX bus driver saw the SUV turning and it veered across the intersection. That’s when the collision happened.
No one was injured, but the bus was full so all of the passengers had to get off and wait for a new bus.
“He had articulated a split bus, so the whole thing just went around the corner going the other direction and there was no cars there,” said SUV driver Stephen Brandonburger, SUV driver.
“I saw the car hit it and I was frightened but I didn’t feel anything so it’s relieving to know I am actually safe in the city buses,” EmX bus rider Noah Matthew-McCleod.
As EPD investigated this crash, another car crashed into the back of another car at the same intersection. No one was injured in that crash.
LTD’s buses all have cameras on the front of them and investigators will use those to help determine what happened.
