Minor injuries after bus crashes through fence
PITTSBURGA, Calif. -- Six people were transported to hospitals with complaints of pain Thursday afternoon after the public transit bus they were riding lost control and crashed through a fence at the Pittsburg/Bay Point BART station, a BART police official said.
BART Deputy Police Chief Ben Farrow said that shortly before 3:30 p.m., a Tri Delta Transit bus was heading through the station's bus zone at 1700 W. Leland Road when it careened out of the parking lot, through a fence and into a dirt lot next to the station.
"We don't know why the bus lost control -- it took out about 10 feet of fencing in the BART bus zone," Farrow said.
He said that no other vehicles appear to have been affected in the crash.
No further information was immediately available.
