A road closure in Stratford caused some traffic issues after a collision involving a city transit bus Wednesday morning.

The bus was involved in a crash with a pick-up truck on a portion of Erie Street which was closed as police investigated the crash. Police have re-opened the roadway after the bus was towed away just before noon. Road repairs may also be necessary following the collision, and the bus ended up crashing into a downtown building as well.

The bus driver and a lone occupant on the bus have been taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
