Sun Metro Bus Crashes Through East El Paso Brick Home
The Sun Metro bus that crashed into an East El Paso home has left behind significant property damage and has sent the bus driver to the hospital.
According to several news outlets, in the early hours of Friday morning, somewhere between 5:30 a.m. and 6:40 a.m., a Sun Metro bus crashed into a home at Anise Drive and Montwood Drive in East El Paso.
KVIA reported that emergency dispatchers revealed that the bus driver and two passengers were inside the bus at the time of the crash.
Even though the bus driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital for observation, the other two passengers reported no other injuries.
However, the bus crash did cause damage to a couple of homes and significantly destroyed the house that it crashed into after the bus came to a complete stop.
As you can see by the photos, the bus crashed and demolished the home's brick wall leaving a vast gaping hole behind and shattered the front of the bus's windows and bumper.
Thankfully it doesn't seem that anyone was inside the home at the time of the accident.
The City of El Paso will be conducting a full investigation that will also include an internal review of the video footage captured by the cameras on board the bus to see what led to the crash.
While El Paso Police are also investigating the crash, there is no official statement on what caused the accident at this time.
