CTA Bus Crash in Chicago Injures Nine on Michigan Avenue, Two in Critical Condition

A CTA bus crashed at Lake Street and Michigan Avenue at the evening rush hour Tuesday (June 2, 2015) leaving nine people injured, two of them critically, according to officials at the scene. The No. 148 Clarendon/Michigan Express bus reportedly was heading east on East Lake Street about 6 p.m. when it struck at least one pedestrian in a crosswalk and four vehicles, according to media reports. At least 10 ambulances were called to the scene, according to witnesses. The bus was a longer accordian-style vehicle and traffic was being re-routed around the area while the injured were being taken to area hospitals. One witness told NBC-5 Chicago News that the bus ran up a curb and hit a concrete wall. A person was pinned under the vehicle itself, according to witnesses. NBC News is reporting that one person may have been killed. Reporters there also are saying that the bus driver was hurt with the front windshield knocked out.
