BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Three people have been sent to the hospital following an accident involving a bus and a tractor-trailer.

A statement released by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says the accident occurred Thursday morning on Forestdale Boulevard.

Authorities say the bus was a Birmingham City Public works vehicle used to transport workers to job sites.

Three people, including the passenger in the tractor-trailer and two people aboard the bus, were injured in the crash. The three were transported to area hospitals.

The sheriff’s office says the injuries of those who were on the bus are considered serious.

An investigation shows the bus attempted to make a U-turn on to U.S. Highway 78 when it pulled into the path of the tractor-trailer and was struck causing it to overturn.
