Teen driver crashes into VIA bus

SAPD: Driver only has permit, may be ticketed

A teenage driver suffered minor injuries when she crashed an SUV into a VIA bus late Wednesday night, San Antonio police said.

The accident occurred just after 10 p.m. on the corner of N. New Braunfels Avenue and Blue Bonnet Boulevard.

Police said the bus made a stop, but the 17-year-old driver did not hit her brakes and rear-ended the bus.

She suffered minor injuries when her airbag deployed. Police said five people were on the bus, but no one was reportedly injured.

Police said the driver could be ticketed because she was in the SUV alone without an adult and only has a permit.
