Tree crashes on bus, baby injured
Passengers on a Coquitlam bus got a serious scare when a tree crashed down on top of it at about noon on Monday.
"We were very fortunate because there were no serious injuries on board," said TransLink spokesperson Erin Dermer.
The 169 bus was on Lougheed Highway, heading to Coquitlam Station, when the tree came down on the bus near Pitt River Road. Dermer said a CN Rail contractor was felling trees when one crashed into the bus.
Three ambulances responded and an infant suffered some superficial injuries. She was assessed by paramedics and released.
There was damage to the roof of the bus as well as a broken windshield and some broken windows on the side of the bus.
