Greenville police say an East Carolina University bus struck multiple cars this morning on 10th Street, before crashing into a utility pole.
Police say the bus first hit between 5 and 8 vehicles at 10th and Charles Blvd. The bus continued for another two blocks before witnesses say it jumped the curb and slammed into a utility pole in front of Starbucks.
Police say the bus driver, who is an ECU student, had some type of medical emergency. The university says there were two student passengers on board the bus when the accident happened. Police tell WITN News that the bus driver and one of those passengers were taken to Pitt County Memorial Hospital.
Power lines are down in the area and 10th Street between Evans and Charles remains shut down. Police say 10th Street will remain closed for the remainder of today. They are advising motorists in that area to stay south of 14th Street .
