MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two people were reportedly taken to the hospital after a MATA bus crashed into a pole Tuesday morning on South Perkins.

A driver behind the bus told WREG the bus veered off the road, hit a utility pole and crashed. The driver believes the person operating the bus may have suffered a medical emergency because no cars were involved.

Another MATA bus came to pick up the remaining passengers.
