2 taken to hospital after bus smashes into London Drugs in Sherwood Park

A bus driver and a London Drugs employee were taken to hospital Tuesday morning, after a bus careened into the Sherwood Park store.

RCMP said it happened at 6:40 a.m., when a Strathcona County transit bus and a pickup truck collided at the intersection at Fir Street and Sherwood Drive.

The bus slid into London Drugs and the driver suffered minor injuries. An employee of the store was nearby when the bus hit, RCMP said.

“An employee in the store was actually directly behind the wall where the bus careened into and was hurt as well, with minor injuries,” said Cpl. Ben Ruddick with Strathcona County RCMP.

The employee was trapped following the collision and had to be extracted by Strathcona County Emergency Services.

Both the employee and bus driver were taken to hospital. There was only one passenger on the transit bus at the time who was not injured.

RCMP are investigating the cause of the crash.

RCMP said they are also looking into whether there was a red light at the intersection for one of the drivers.

The driver of the pickup truck was not injured.
