“We don’t know yet if it was a medical emergency or the result of the crash,” said Ryan Hawk, acting chief of the McCandless Police Department.
The bus, the O12-McKnight Flyer, was carrying about a dozen passengers and heading outbound at the time of the crash, Port Authority says. One passenger was checked by medics at the scene and then released.
One passenger was defaulted for injuries and released.
Police are investigating.
McKnight road has since completely reopened to traffic.
This is the second fatal crash involving a Port Authority Bus in less than a week.
Over the weekend, a Pitt student was struck and killed by a bus.
