A school bus was involved on a crash on inbound Route 28 on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019.

No one was hurt in a crash involving an empty school bus that closed inbound Route 28 on Wednesday during the morning rush hour.

Millvale police Chief Tim Komoroski said six vehicles including an ABC Transit bus with only the driver inside were involved in the crash.

It happened about 6:30 a.m. near the 40th Street Bridge in Millvale. Komoroski wouldn’t comment on what caused the crash.

Two vehicles and the school bus were heavily damaged, Komoroski said. The others were driven from the scene.

The road was reopened about 7:30 a.m., but traffic was snarled on Route 28 because of the accident, plus another one near the Highland Park Bridge that state police responded to. Details about that crash weren’t immediately available.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
