Bus Strikes Truck, Flips It Over

A Metropolitan Transit System bus crashed into a truck Thursday, causing it to roll over and trap those inside.

The crash happened at 11:20 a.m. at Pacific Highway and Enterprise Street in the Midway District when the bus hit the pickup truck, San Diego police say.

As the truck rolled onto its side, two people became trapped. Firefighters had to use the jaws of life to put the roof off the red truck. Both people were taken to the hospital for minor injuries, as were three people from the bus.

The intersection was closed for a time while police investigated the crash. There is no word on who is at fault.
