Danville, VA - Six people were sent to the hospital this weekend after an accident involving a Danville transit bus.

Video of that accident shows the driver of a gold Kia SUV running a red light at Craghead and Patton Streets and hitting the ongoing bus. It all happened around 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

The car and bus were both towed from the scene. Transportation Services Director Marc Adelman assures Danville residents that their bus drivers practice safe driving and has a message for Danville residents.

"They maintain a safety first perspective towards driving, and I think they should feel very comfortable riding with us," he said.

While the bus driver was okay, there is no word on the condition of the victims. An insurance company is assessing the bus damage.
