KANSAS CITY, Mo. - An Area Transportation Authority bus with 13 passengers on board rolled over in Kansas City, Mo., on Wednesday evening.
Kansas City, Mo. Police Sgt. Bill Mahoney said at about 7:55 p.m. a silver car pulled out in front of the bus, which was heading south on Prairie View Road. The bus clipped the car, swerved to the right, rolled down an embankment and landed up-side-down, Mahoney said.
Three people were inside the car and of the 16 people involved, 14 were taken to four different hospitals, Mahoney said.
The injuries ranged from minor to serious but none were life-threatening, according to Mahoney.
Randi Sanders and her boyfriend Michael Adkins were in a truck right behind the silver car at the time of the crash and say the slick roads played a major factor.
"It gets wet on that hill, and the tires (of the silver car) just spun," Adkins said. "It didn't get over in time."
Mark Huffer, General Manager of the KCATA released the following statement:
"Earlier this evening, there was a serious accident involving a KCATA bus at approximately 56th & Prairie View in the Northland. The accident will be thoroughly investigated and KCATA is cooperating with KCPD to determine the cause. Thankfully, there appear to be no life-threatening injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with our passengers and their families."
