A Metro Transit bus veered off the road and crashed in south Minneapolis this morning, injuring six passengers and the driver.

The driver of a westbound Route 17 bus apparently became unconscious while driving on Lake Street around Excelsior Blvd. near Lake Calhoun, said Metro Transit spokesman Drew Kerr.

The bus crashed into bushes around 6:40 a.m. A driver in a bus following behind saw the accident and called police.

Ambulances took the victims to Hennepin County Medical Center. None of the injuries were serious, just bumps and bruises, Kerr said.
