An Albuquerque Rapid Transit bus got a broken headlight and four passengers were taken to hospital with minor injuries after a Wednesday afternoon crash in Nob Hill.

ABQ Ride spokesman Rick De Reyes said the bus was headed east on Central, west of Girard, around 12:40 p.m. when a blue Ford Mustang tried to get into the ART lane.

“Our driver beeped at them several times,” De Reyes said.

He said the car was “trying to make a turn of some sort” and went into the ART lane, where the bus hit it.

De Reyes said the four passengers taken to a hospital have non-life-threatening injuries and the bus will be back on the street Thursday.

Since starting service Nov. 30, De Reyes said, ART buses have come into contact with other vehicles 30 times. The incidents range from a minor scrape to more serious crashes, such as the two that temporarily sidelined a couple of buses in early December.

Multiple crashes have resulted in damage to other vehicles, including two that involved Albuquerque police officers.

There have also been a couple of crashes involving pedestrians, one of which left an 18-year-old woman dead.
