VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – Multiple people were injured in a bus accident Friday afternoon.

The accident happened around 1:09 p.m. in the 2700 block of Princess Anne Road.

Police say a car was turning into a driveway and a vehicle stopped quickly to avoid a collision. The car behind that vehicle swerved into the next lane to avoid hitting it. The bus had already swerved into that lane to avoid the quickly stopping cars, which is when the accident happened.

Tom Holden with HRT says nine of the 16 people aboard the bus were taken to the hospital for injuries. The driver of the SUV was also taken to the hospital for injuries.

No charges have been filed. Police are still investigating.
