A dozen passengers and the driver of a SEPTA bus were injured in the city's Logan section when the vehicle was rear-ended by a dump truck.
The crash, at 10:39 a.m. Wednesday at the intersection of Germantown and Windrim Aves., sent 12 passengers and the operator of the Route 23 bus to emergency rooms at Einstein Medical Center and Temple University Hospital where they were treated for neck and back injuries, said Andrew Busch, a SEPTA spokesman. The truck driver was also treated at a local hospital. "The bus was stopped at Windrim," Busch said. "We're not sure if it was picking up passengers or dropping them off at the time."
