Police are investigating a crash between a Pittsburgh Regional Transit bus and a car that temporarily closed the Mansfield Bridge on Wednesday night and sent two people to the hospital.

Transit agency spokesman Adam Brandolph said a 61C McKeesport bus in-bound to the city collided with a car as it exited the bridge onto West Fifth Avenue. The wreck happened just after 9 p.m.

The bus operator was taken by ambulance to UPMC McKeesport hospital for treatment after suffering chest and head injuries, Brandolph said. The operator’s name and condition were not available on Thursday.

Emergency personnel said the driver of the car also was taken to a hospital. The car was struck on the driver’s side and appeared to have been entering the bridge, heading south from Monongahela Avenue, but that could not immediately be confirmed on Thursday.

No passengers on the bus were injured, Brandolph said.

McKeesport police said the accident happened on the Glassport section of the bridge ramp and that borough’s police are handling the investigation.
