SALT LAKE CITY — Two people were taken to hospitals after a crash involving a UTA bus and another vehicle in Salt Lake City Friday morning.

Salt Lake City Police confirm the crash occurred in the area of 3rd Avenue and L Street in Salt Lake City. Fox 13 News first heard report of the crash around 10:30 a.m. Friday.

Carl Arky, a UTA Spokesman, said two people inside the passenger vehicle were taken to hospitals but he did not have specific information about the extent of their injuries.

There were no injuries reported among the occupants of the bus.

Arky said the cause of the crash is still under investigation.

A photo from the scene shows damage to an SUV and the UTA bus after the impact, and it appears both vehicles sustained damage to their windshields.

Arky said the bus route in question is back in service and said in these cases they generally bring in a different bus to service the route.
