Six people have been injured, three of them critically, after a van crashed into a bus shelter in north Minneapolis Tuesday morning.

Metro Transit says that the crash happened at about 9:20 a.m. at a shelter near the intersection of Lyndale and West Broadway.

The tan-colored van struck the mirror of a Metro Transit bus before veering onto West Broadway, colliding with the bus shelter that is located next to a surface parking lot.

Six people who were in or near the shelter at the time were hurt in the collision and taken to local hospitals.

Three of them are in a critical condition at North Memorial Medical Center.

The driver of the van has been taken into custody and is being questioned by Metro Transit police.

It's the second time in the past three months that Minneapolis has seen a serious crash at a bus shelter.

In May, one man had to have his leg amputated and two others were injured after a car crashed into a shelter on Lake Street.
