Reports: SUV runs red light, sends Minneapolis school bus into house


A school bus crashed into a house in north Minneapolis Tuesday morning after colliding with an SUV.

Minneapolis police tell KSTP that the SUV reportedly ran a red light at 42nd Ave. and Penn Ave. N. around 8 a.m. and hit the school bus, sending it into a nearby house.

The Star Tribune says a boy who appeared to be about 10 years old and his mother, who was driving the school bus, were the only two aboard the bus at the time of the crash. They were uninjured, according to police.

WCCO said two people inside the SUV were transported to the hospital. A police spokeswoman said none of the injuries appear to be serious, the Star Tribune reported.

It's unclear if anyone was inside the house.
