PITTSBURGH (AP) - County transit police say a cement truck has rear-ended a bus in downtown Pittsburgh, hurting 10 passengers on board, though a transit spokesman says none had life-threatening injuries.

Port Authority of Allegheny County police Lt. Matt Porter says the cement truck toppled over after hitting the bus about 9:50 a.m. Wednesday.

Neither driver was hurt, but nine passengers were taken to UPMC Mercy hospital and a tenth to Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC.

Port Authority spokesman Jim Ritchie says the passengers’ injuries were typical of a rear-end accident, primarily bruises or complaints of neck and back pain.

Transit police didn’t immediately release the drivers’ names or say whether either would be cited.

The conditions of the passengers were not immediately available.
