Six people were injured Tuesday when a car and a CATS bus collided on Oaklawn Avenue in northwest Charlotte.
The collision happened during rush hour, just after 8 a.m.
According to a police report, the bus, driven by Tequilla Long, 37, had stopped in the 1000 block of Oaklawn Avenue to pick up a passenger. As the bus was pulling away, it collided head-on by a Dodge Stratus driven by 18-year-old Brandon Lamark Crew.
Police said Crew was traveling in the opposite direction as the bus when he drove out of his lane, though a turn lane and into oncoming traffic.
Crew was taken to a hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. A front-seat passenger in the car sustained life-threatening injuries. A third person in the car had minor injuries.
The CATS bus was carrying three passengers. All were taken to a hospital with minor injuries, police said. Tequilla, the bus driver, was not injured.
No charges were immediately filed in the case. Police said speed likely played a role in the crash.
