2 people hurt after a traffic collision in downtown Knoxville (Knoxville, TN)

On Thursday morning, two people were hospitalized following a traffic collision involving a school bus number 36 and a Jeep in downtown Knoxville.

As per the initial information, the two-vehicle crash took place at West Church Avenue and Gay Street at about 6:00 a.m. The preliminary investigation indicated that the Jeep failed to stop at a red light and slammed into the bus, causing it to run into a building.

According to the officials, there were no children on the bus at the time of the accident because it occurred before its scheduled work for KCS. The drivers of both the Jeep and bus were transported to the hospital with minimal injuries.

The school district stated that it secured another bus to pick up students on time, so they do not expect a delay getting students to school. Charges are pending against the driver of the Jeep. No other details are immediately available.

The crash remains under investigation.
