Bus and car collide in Vancouver, but no one hurt

By The Canadian Press

VANCOUVER - Vancouver police say a bus and car collided with each other on Granville Street Bridge.

Const. Brian Montague says no one was injured in the accident and says officers probably will not investigate the collision because no people were hurt.

Montague says there were no other details available.

The crash comes days after a tour bus carrying 56 people flipped over on a mountain highway 30 kilometres south of Merritt.

Everyone was hurt in that accident, and on Friday seven people were in critical condition and six others were being treated for serious injuries.

The bus crashed while it was returning to Vancouver from a tour of the Rocky Mountains and the passengers are from Canada, mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the United States.

Investigators have yet to determine the cause of the accident, but have ruled out speed and road conditions.
