    I was a passenger on the Plymouth bus that got in an accident this morning in downtown Minneapolis. A grey SUV/van ran a red light in front of the bus and the bus t-boned him. Then the bus kept going down the street and hit a US postal mail carrier car and then finally a street light before coming to a stop. Passengers got out of the bus using emergency windows. The driver of the bus was still laying on the floor of the bus when everyone else left. Emergency services arrived soon and tended to the driver and others involved.
