A concrete mixer truck overturned after it ran into the back of a bus Downtown on Wednesday morning, a Port Authority of Allegheny County spokesman said.

Of the 10 bus passengers taken to hospitals, most were transported to UPMC Mercy, Uptown, but none had life-threatening injuries, Port Authority spokesman Jim Ritchie said.

The crash occurred at about 9:50 a.m. at the intersection of Second Avenue and Ross Street, the Allegheny County dispatch center said.

There were about 20 people on the bus, which was on the 57 Hazelwood route, Ritchie said.

The truck was cleared from the scene between 2:45 and 3 p.m., and the bus was towed away several hours earlier, he said.

Port Authority police are investigating the crash.
