Sven James Kirtz, the driver of a white 2005 Ford F-250 truck, rear-ended the MTA bus and then struck a light pole as a passenger was getting off, according to police.

Kirtz, 40, was taken to Shock Trauma where he later died of his injuries. The bus driver and two passengers were also taken to area hospitals with “varying injuries,” although none appeared to be life-threatening, police said.

Investigators did not identify who was at fault for the crash.

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call investigators at (410) 396-2606.
