PARK CITY, Utah – A woman was taken to a hospital in serious condition Saturday after a vehicle reportedly traveling too fast T-boned a bus.

Utah Highway Patrol troopers said the crash occurred as a bus was turning left at the intersection from State Route 224 and Newpark Boulevard.

The bus was turning on a yellow light, and a car traveling the opposite direction was reportedly speeding to attempt to make it through the intersection before the light changed and collided with the bus.

Trooper Steven Crowe, UHP, said drivers should be alert and that going a little faster isn’t worth the risk of injury or death.

“There's a lot of people on the road right now, especially a lot of bikers, pedestrians, people in the crosswalk, a lot of extra cars--so, you just need to really pay attention, look around,” he said. “You know, getting somewhere five minutes faster isn't really worth the risk."

There were about a dozen people on the bus, none of whom were injured. There were two people in the car that struck the bus, and a female passenger was taken to a hospital in serious condition.
