CORNWALL – Five people have been taken to hospital after a crash involving two cars, a minivan and a Cornwall Transit bus.
The collision happened around 6:45 p.m. on the bridge on Pitt Street, north of the Tollgate Road intersection.
Three people in a red Dodge minivan, one woman in a Chevrolet sedan and the Cornwall Transit bus driver were taken to hospital by Cornwall-SDG Paramedic Services to be assessed.
The three people in the Dodge minivan included a young boy – possibly around five years old.
The woman, in a neck brace, and the bus driver were both coherent and speaking with EMS workers as they were loaded into ambulances.
There were no passengers on the Cornwall Transit bus.
A section of Pitt Street, north of Tollgate Road, was closed for a police investigation to determine the cause of the crash and for Cornwall Towing to take away the wrecked vehicles.
A spokesman for Cornwall Transit told Cornwall Newswatch that a replacement bus for the #1 McConnell route was on the job but the route would be running behind schedule tonight.
