Transit Windsor Passengers Shaken Up In Crash

A group of passengers on a Transit Windsor bus were not injured, but shaken, after a crash.

The bus ran off the road at Crawford Ave. and Wyandotte St. W. just after 11:30am, jumping the curb and striking a light pole.

Nathan Harris was on board when it happened.

"The bus was ready to leave, the bus driver said he fell off the seat, and the bus jerked over the curb and hit the pole everybody flew and everybody got off the bus," says Harris. "It was a jerk because we jumped the curb then a big bang like when we hit the light pole — that's when everybody jerked forward because we stopped."

Mocha Nealy is worried how the crash has affected her.

"I'm 7 and a half months pregnant, so I might have to go to OB later," says Nealy. "I also have seizures so if I go into a seizure later it might be from the situation that just occurred, so I do have to go to OB triage to make sure my baby and I are okay."

Westbound Wyandotte Ave. near Crawford was closed after the crash. 

Windsor police are investigating.
