SAN ANTONIO – A car crashed head-on into a VIA bus on the city’s Northwest Side early Wednesday morning.

The crash occurred just before 6 a.m. near the intersection of Wurzbach Road and Cairo, not far from Evers Road.

According to VIA, the bus was traveling westbound on Wurzbach Road when a car heading in the opposite direction crossed its path, hitting the bus head-on.
