MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities are investigating after a school bus crashed into a house in north Minneapolis Tuesday morning.
Police said the crash happened at about 8:19 a.m. near the intersection of 42nd and Penn. Authorities said an SUV ran a red light at the intersection then hit the school bus. The bus then spun into the house.
Authorities said the bus had a driver and one child on board at the time of the crash. The extent of their injuries is not known. There were two people inside the SUV, and they were both taken to a hospital.
Authorities said the bus was in between routes at the time of the accident.
“The SUV had two occupants, and adult made and adult female. Both of them have been transported to the hospital to be checked out for possible injuries. They were complaining of some pain,” said Cyndi Barrington with the Minneapolis Police Department.
The Minneapolis School District will do an internal investigation, even though the crash didn’t seem to be bus driver’s fault, as is customary in this type of situation .
A view at the scene shows a large crack on the exterior of the home from where the bus hit.
What led up to the crash is still under investigation.
