Eight people were injured when two cars collided with a CTA bus early Sunday in the West Side Humboldt Park neighborhood.
The crash happened at 5:28 a.m. at North Pulaski Road and West Chicago Avenue, according to Fire Media Affairs.
The collision occurred between two cars and a bus, said police News Affairs John Mirabelli.
An eastbound No. 66 Chicago bus was involved in the crash, CTA spokeswoman Tammy Chase said, adding that the cause still was under investigation. She could not say Sunday how long the driver had been a CTA employee.
Eight people in fair-to-serious condition were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, Norwegian-American Hospital, Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County and Loretto Hospital, fire officials said.
Six of the injured included a CTA bus driver and five passengers, Chase said. They suffered minor injuries, she said. Two passengers, one person from each car, were also injured.
