Emergency crews are on the scene of a two-vehicle collision involving a BC Transit bus.

The crash happened just after 10 a.m. on Highway 33 and Gertstmar Road in Rutland.

According to a witness on the scene, it appears a black pickup truck hit the back of the bus as it was stopped at a bus shelter.

One person on the bus suffered minor injuries as did the driver of the truck, according to firefighters on scene.

A BC Transit official explained the bus route is still running after a second bus arrived to pick up passengers.

It’s unclear if the bus will be operational or need to be towed.

Traffic is moving in both directions along Highway 33.
