Four people were injured in a shuttle bus crash Friday afternoon at Pittsburgh International Airport.

Three adults were taken to Heritage Valley Sewickley hospital and a child was taken to Children's Hospital in Lawrenceville following the crash that occurred around 4 p.m., airport spokeswoman JoAnn Jenny said, describing the injuries as mainly “bumps and bruises.”

The crash occurred at what is known as the Commercial Departure curb near the drop-off for taxis, limousines and shuttle buses.

One of the shuttles swerved in an attempt to avoid hitting the rear of a shuttle in front of it, Jenny said. It clipped the side of the bumper for the lead shuttle before crashing into a jersey barrier, she said.
