PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) - Authorities say two people were injured when a public transit bus and a tractor-trailer collided in Pawtucket.

WJAR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1cYTQKT ) that the crash occurred at the corner of Church and Pine streets at about 1 p.m. Tuesday. Passengers on the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority bus say it was making a turn when the tractor-trailer ran a red light and hit the bus.

A RIPTA spokeswoman told The Associated Press that two people were brought to a hospital with injuries. It wasn’t immediately clear how serious the injuries were.

No criminal charges have been announced.

There have been four pedestrian-related accidents involving RIPTA buses in the past 18 months, including one in March that killed a 9-year-old Providence girl. Police said the driver wasn’t at fault.
