The crash was captured on surveillance camera at a nearby building.

“I wasn’t the first one on the scene but there were a number of people I knew from the area that were just trying to assist probably a middle aged woman. Her hand was through the windshield,” said a man that lives nearby who asked not to be identified.

There were four passengers on board. All four and the bus driver were taken to an area hospital, as was the woman driving the SUV.

Transit Police described the injuries as minor for the five people on the bus, which the SUV driver suffered serious injuries. The crash remains under investigation.

“I don’t know if she had a medical emergency or what. It just seemed something, something more to her situation here to what went on,” the resident said.
