Multiple passengers of the SEPTA bus sustained injuries, but no children were on board the school bus at the time of the accident.

A Route L SEPTA bus collided with a small school bus at approximately 6:05 a.m. this morning at North Park Avenue and West Olney Avenue in Fern Rock, according to SEPTA spokeswoman Heather Redfern. The bus operator and 13 of its passengers sustained minor, non life-threatening injuries.

There were no children on the school bus, and no injuries were reported to the three adult passengers. Redfern said that witnesses of the crash indicated that the school bus caused the crash by running a traffic light, but those accounts have not been confirmed.

O’Brien said that the cause of the accident is not known.
