November 8, 2011- A Fresno Area Express bus crashed into a car Tuesday at about 12:15 PM in downtown Fresno.
The Ford sedan pulled in front of the FAX bus at the intersection of M Street and San Benito, while it was coming off Highway 41. Police said the driver stopped at a stop sign, then continued into traffic without seeing the bus.
The driver of the bus was eastbound on M Street when the car pulled in front of the bus. The bus driver slammed on the brakes, but the bus hit the back of the Ford. The crash caused some damage to the rear of the car. The bus had some minor damage.
The car’s driver and passenger escaped the accident unscathed, but the bus driver and the 13 passengers riding the bus suffered minor injuries. They were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment.
