2 STM buses collide due to icy road conditions in Saint-Laurent
6 passengers and 2 bus drivers were treated for minor injuries
Eight people suffered minor injuries after two Société de transport de Montréal (STM) buses collided Friday morning in Saint-Laurent.
Around 6:50 a.m., two buses were heading north on Brabant-Marineau Street, near Henri-Bourassa Boulevard, when one rear-ended the other, said Montreal police spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant.
He said it appeared that the second bus could not stop in time due to ice on the road, and hit the first bus.
Six passengers and both drivers were injured, according to a spokesperson for the STM. The passengers were taken to Sacré-Cœur de Montréal hospital.
Brabant-Marineau was briefly closed as the buses were moved, but has since reopened to traffic.
The STM is investigating to make sure there was no mechanical issue with the buses involved.
