Police are investigating a collision between a city transit bus transporting students to school and a truck on Friday morning.
Red Deer Emergency Services responded to the crash on 32 Street and Metcalf Avenue at about 8:20 a.m.
The truck driver suffered minor injuries and was transported to the hospital by ambulance.
A city transit bus along Route 7 had been carrying about 30 passengers, including students from East View Middle School.
But no serious injuries were reported among students and passengers, states a release from the City of Red Deer.
“After determining that no one on the bus was hurt,” students were transferred to another bus and taken to school.
“We take the safety of the public, other motorists, and our transit operators and passengers very seriously,” said George Penny, the city’s transit manager.
“We will be looking at the circumstances surrounding the accident, and making changes if necessary. I would like to thank all staff and people involved for their speedy and professional response.”
The accident resulted in significant traffic delays for morning commuters with the closure of the two westbound lanes on 32 Street.
The RCMP is continuing its investigation.
