BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Nine people, including a bus driver, were taken to the hospital after an NFTA Metro bus was involved in a crash at Bailey and East Delevan avenues in Buffalo.

The accident happened just before 11 a.m. Friday, when, according to a witness, a car crashed into the bus, causing it to crash into a parked car in the Rite Aid parking lot.

Police said a car ran a red light and was moving at a high rate of speed when it hit the bus, which veered off of the road and into a vehicle that was unoccupied.

Two of the people taken to the hospital had injuries the NFTA described as serious.
