Bus, minivan collide in Bridgeport

BRIDGEPORT - Officials with the Greater Bridgeport Transit District say four people are recovering, including one of their drivers, after a city bus and a minivan collided Sunday night.

The accident happened at around 8 p.m. at the intersection of Park and Suburban avenues, near the Trumbull line.

The driver was released from St. Vincent's Medical Center Sunday night. Witnesses say at least three people were treated by paramedics at the scene.

Investigators hope surveillance video from a camera aboard the bus will help determine what happened. The bus, which runs along the No. 4 line, received minor damage and should return to service soon.
