According to authorities, the driver of the bus overcorrected a turn, when the car proximately responsible ran the stop sign at Tierwester and Corder streets, allegedly causing it to crash into a nearby home.

With no one inside at the time of the incident, police said they notified homeowner Darrell Parker of the damage shortly afterward.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Parker said in an interview with ABC 13.

Four people – three passengers and the bus driver – reportedly received transport to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
