Nine people were left injured following this collision.

The Line 210 Metro Bus has picked up passengers and was heading to the next bus stop on Thursday afternoon, March 28th.

A silver SUV had rolled and was laying on its side in the middle of the roadway, according to surveillance of the scene. Officers had to block the area for an extended period of time firefighters checked on everyone involved and gave medical aid to those in need.
