An Aggie shuttle was involved in a car accident Friday morning.
Logan Police Lieutenant Brad Franke said a shuttle was turning left from the east side of 1400 North onto 800 East at 7:30 a.m. when a blue 2007 Hyundai Sonata heading west on 800 East ran the red light and hit the bus.
“Driver number one (of the Hyundai) is a 22-year-old male from Logan,” Franke said.
The bus driver, a 24-year-old man from Logan, was thrown from his seat, Franke said. The bus traveled another 200 feet until the driver was able to reach over and stop the bus with his hands, he said.
The bus had no passengers, and no major injuries were reported, according to Franke.
The driver of the Hyundai was issued a red light violation, Franke said. The bus driver was issued a seatbelt violation.
Damages were not assessed, though both vehicles were towed from the scene, according to Franke.
