Two people were injured Friday afternoon in McKeesport when an SUV hit the back of a Port Authority bus that was picking up passengers.

The accident occurred shortly before 4 p.m. when the 60 Walnut-Crawford Village bus stopped in front of the Shop 'n Save on Lysle Boulevard and was hit from behind.

A woman who was boarding the bus fell and was transported to UPMC McKeesport. The driver of the GMC was taken to an area hospital.

Authorities at the scene said there were six to 12 passengers on the bus, which had just left the transit station along Lysle Boulevard. A Port Authority official said neither the bus driver nor any of the passengers were injured.

Monique McCrae saw the accident as she was waiting at the bus stop.

“The bus was waiting for people to get on. I thought the (GMC driver) was going to move around the bus but he came straight in, full speed,” she said.

Port Authority police are investigating.
