16 students, two adults injured in MTA bus crash

An accident involving a car and a Maryland Transit Administration bus on Friday morning in Baltimore resulted in 16 students and two adults who were on the bus being taken to area hospitals with minor injuries, a MTA spokesman said.

A preliminary investigation by MTA Police showed the car ran a stop sign at the intersection of S. Pulaski and Hollins streets in the Boyd Booth neighborhood of Southwest Baltimore about 8:09 a.m., striking the bus, said Paul Shepard, the spokesman.

The two adults — one the driver of the bus — and the students "complained of minor bruising, headaches, and other minor injuries," Shepard said, and were taken to Johns Hopkins and St. Agnes hospitals and the University of Maryland Medical Center for treatment.

The students, who ranged in age from 11 to 17, all attend area schools, Shepard said. Students in the city's public schools system routinely rely on public transit.

The accident remains under investigation by the MTA Police. Local bus service was restored to its normal schedule shortly after the incident, Shepard said.

He said he did not know how many people were on the bus at the time of the accident.
