HOUSTON—A Metro bus and a light rail train collided Monday afternoon near the St. Joseph Medical Center in downtown Houston.
It happened around 2:30 p.m. at St. Joseph Parkway and Main Street.
Officials said at least 18 people were taken to the hospital after the crash. None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening, but at least one person was taken away from the scene on a stretcher by paramedics.
The cause of the accident was not clear, but it appeared that the bus hit the first car of the train, knocking it slightly off the tracks.
The bus had visible damage to its font end.
Metro officials were investigating.
Last month, a similar downtown collision between a bus and light rail train sent nine people to the hospital. In that accident, the bus apparently ran a red light and struck the train.
