The UB Post - - DOMESTIC -

The Traf­fic Po­lice Depart­ment con­firmed on Mon­day that 12 stu­dents, aged 16 and 17, were in­jured dur­ing col­li­sion be­tween a pub­lic bus and a large truck on Sun­day.

The bus was re­port­edly car­ry­ing around 40 pas­sen­gers when the truck col­lided into it from be­hind. The traf­fic po­lice re­ported that the bus driver and most pas­sen­gers were un­harmed by the ac­ci­dent and that they are un­able to con­firm the con­di­tion of the 12 in­jured teenagers yet.

“It was de­ter­mined that the driv­ers of the bus and truck were not un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol. We’re try­ing to find the cause of the ac­ci­dent right now,” an of­fi­cer re­ported on Mon­day.

Due to the traf­fic ac­ci­dent, Son­s­golon Bridge was closed for an un­de­ter­mined pe­riod of time for road re­pairs. In par­tic­u­lar, the fences on the right side of the bridge were dam­aged af­ter the bus driver at­tempted to stop the bus from get­ting pushed off the bridge by the on­com­ing truck.
