Several Hospitalized After DDOT Bus Crashes Into Building

DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit police say several people have been taken to the hospital after the DDOT bus they were riding crashed into the side of a vacant building on the city’s east side.

The accident happened Tuesday morning Audubon Road, near East Outer Drive and East Warren.

According to sources, a car was headed southbound on Audubon when the driver disregarded a stop sign and crashed into the bus. The collision caused the bus to then crash into the building.

Michael Anton told WWJ’s Mike Campbell he saw the whole thing unfold.

“The bus was about right here, at Audubon and Warren, and he saw him so he tried to speed up a little bit to keep from hitting him head on. The car hit the bus like right in the middle and drove the bus to the southbound side of Warren,” Anton said.

Police said about a dozen people were transported to local hospitals with minor injuries. The driver of the vehicle that hit the bus suffered among the most serious injuries, and was last listed in temporary-serious condition.
