Only minor injuries were reported Saturday when a wrong-way driver clipped a DART bus and sent it crashing into a Salvation Army Family Store off Jefferson Boulevard.
The accident happened around 6 a.m. Saturday, the bus was traveling DART route 11 to drop a passenger in a wheelchair off at Bexar Street. As the driver crossed the intersection of Polk and Jefferson, a Nissan SUV came driving the wrong way up Polk Street and clipped the front of the bus. According to CBS News, the collision forced the bus off the road and through the front of the Salvation Army Family Store. Two people in the SUV and two people on the bus were transported to Methodist Central Hospital with minor injuries.
“The best thing, is that it happened on a Saturday morning when no (one) was in the building,” said DART spokesman Mark Ball.
This year has been an eventful one for cars running into buildings. First, we had a truck crash into a Petland back in February. Then, in April, a blue Honda plowed in Irving Baptist Fellowship
. We also saw a Volkswagen collide with a Panera Bread in Watauga, TX during May rains.
Thankfully, none of these accidents resulted in major injuries (that we are aware of).
Drive safely, Dallas.
