At least two people were injured on Wednesday afternoon when a small school bus collided with a car near the entrance of the Giant Eagle in North Versailles Township.

North Versailles police said the Pennsylvania Coach Lines bus was traveling west along Lincoln Highway and the car was coming from the opposite direction when the driver of the car attempted to turn left across traffic onto Luehm Avenue.

Fire Department of North Versailles Chief Mike Volpe said the bus struck the passenger side of the car and a woman in the passenger seat had to be extricated.

“We used a spreader to gain access to her,” Volpe said. “We turned her over to White Oak EMS, and they already had two other people in the ambulance upon our arrival.”

North Versailles police Officer David Reiche said both people in the car and an aide riding the bus were taken to a hospital. The bus driver was not injured.

A representative on the scene for Pennsylvania Coach Lines had no comment.
