Two people, including a 61-year-old male pedestrian, were sent to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a car and a Metro Transit bus collided yesterday afternoon.
According to Halifax Regional Police, a Metro Transit bus was travelling northbound on Alderney Drive in Dartmouth at about 12:50 p.m. when a car going southbound attempting to make a left-hand turn onto Portland Street pulled in front of the bus.
“The bus (then) hit the car, causing the car to go up and strike a pedestrian on the sidewalk,” said Halifax Regional Police spokesman Const. Brian Palmeter.
The 31-year-old driver of the car was also injured, and she, along with the pedestrian, was taken to hospital by ambulance.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation. Police have yet to decide on whether any charges will be laid.
