ST. PAUL (WCCO) – A pick-up truck slammed into a Metro Transit bus Wednesday morning, sending both vehicles into a building. As many as eight people were sent to the hospital.
The crash happened at the corner of Cedar and Sixth streets just after 9 a.m.
The bus involved was the Route 94 bus, according to Metro Transit spokesman John Siqveland.
