School Bus, SUV Collide, 2 Hurt

A school bus and a sports utility vehicle collided this morning landing two people in hospital.

The bus crashed along Kelly Drive near Sedgely Road near Boat House Row in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park around 9 a.m.

Two people from the Lexus SUV were transported to the hospital with undisclosed injuries.

There were kids on the bus but none of the kids were hurt.

It appeared the bus crashed into the back of the Lexus. The front of the bus showed damage while the rear of the SUV showed significant damage.

It wasn't clear where the bus was going since normally large vehicles don't travel on the river drives in Philly.

The yellow bus was leased out from Holcomb Bus Service in Bellmawr, N.J. The company had no comment about the crash and didn't say which organization has rented the bus.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation.

This wasn't the only incident involving a school bus Friday. According to firefighters, a mechanical issue caused a school bus to catch fire just after 9 a.m. at 33rd Street and Girard Avenue. No one was hurt and it wasn't clear if anyone was on board.
