NEWPORT, R.I. (WPRI) — Emergency responders were called Monday to a crash involving a RIPTA bus near the border of Newport and Middletown.
The crash happened around 11:30 a.m. where Admiral Kalbfus Road meets West Main Road.
Officers say the RIPTA bus was stopped at a red light and when the light turned green, a second vehicle tried to turn left causing the bus to stop, but the wet road from the rain caused the bus to slide.
Two passengers and the bus driver were transported to the hospital for minor injuries.
No citations have been issued, but police said the crash remains under investigation.
