SAN DIEGO – A San Diego County Sheriff Department’s bus carrying 31 prisoners and two sheriff’s deputies was involved in a crash on state Route 163 Wednesday during the afternoon commute.
The driver of a BMW didn’t notice that traffic had slowed down and rear-ended a Honda. The force of the collision pushed the Honda in front of the bus, causing a second crash.
Nobody involved in the crash was seriously injured. One deputy received a minor hand injury during the collision.
The inmates were transferred to a second bus for transportation to their final destination, according to sheriff’s spokesperson Sgt. N. Rowley.
CHP is conducting a traffic investigation.
