Seven Injured When Metro Bus, SUV Collide; DUI Suspected
Seven people were injured Tuesday evening when an SUV bounced off a concrete road barrier and plowed head-on into a Metro bus in Winnetka, authorities said.
The 30-year-old SUV driver was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, Metro spokesman Paul Gonzalez said at the scene.
Both drivers and five bus passengers were taken to a hospital with non-critical injuries. They are listed in stable condition, Gonzalez said.
The crash occurred at 8:41 p.m. on Vanowen Street at Mason Avenue. The concrete barrier was in the middle of Vanowen Street, which is under construction, Gonzalez said.
