Five people were injured in a crash involving a CTA bus Thursday morning on the South Side.

A CTA No. 75 bus heading east collided with a vehicle at the intersection of 75th and King Drive at 11:50 a.m., according to CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski.

Two people in serious-to-critical condition were taken to Stroger Hospital and Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to Fire Media. Three others in fair-to-serious condition were taken to Jackson Park Hospital and St. Bernard Hospital.

Three of the injured were on the bus, including the driver, Hosinski said.
