Authorities say one person died and six others were injured in a crash involving a Metro Transit bus and a pickup truck late Sunday in Minneapolis.
It happened just after 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of Chicago Avenue and 25th Street, near Children’s Minnesota hospital.
Metro Transit said the bus was traveling north on Chicago Avenue when it collided with the truck as it crossed the avenue. Authorities said it appears the truck did not stop at a stop sign before entering the intersection.
In an update late Monday morning, Metro Transit said an occupant of the truck died at the scene. Six people on the bus suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
KARE 11 video footage from the crash scene showed the bus involved was on the D Line bus rapid transit route that travels between Brooklyn Center, Minn., and the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn.
That footage also showed a heavily damaged pickup truck with the truck bed torn off.
The Minnesota State Patrol is assisting with the crash reconstruction and investigation.
