CENTER CITY More than 20 people were taken to hospitals after a SEPTA bus was struck by a car that ran a red light in Center City late Friday afternoon, police said.
About 4:49 p.m., a Route 23 bus was heading north on 11th Street when a 2011 Mazda traveling west on Vine Street crashed into the front right side of the bus, police said.
The bus jumped a curb, knocked down a traffic light, hit three parked cars, and scraped the side of a church before coming to a stop, police said. No pedestrians were injured.
The bus driver, a 57-year-old woman, suffered a possible seizure and was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital.
