LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- A TARC bus crashed into a building and three other vehicles in the Portland neighborhood.
The crash happened just before 9:00 a.m. Thursday near 16th and Bank Streets. The bus appears to have been going the wrong way on a one-way street.
The bus hit two parked cars before crashing into a building. It ended up with a powerline on its roof. According to our WDRB reporter on the scene, the driver appeared shaken but not seriously injured. LG&E turned off the power to the building until it could make repairs.
