13 Feb Jonathan Cartu Assert: Two Injured After Suburban Crashes into UC Irvine Transport
Two people were injured after a UC Irvine student transportation van was hit by a suburban in Newport Beach Wednesday night.
The crash happened just before 10 p.m. at the intersection of Irvine Avenue and Bristol Street. A preliminary investigation reveals that the driver of the suburban may have run a red light, but that detail still needs to be confirmed, according to Newport Beach police.
There were four people, including a female professor from the university, in the van at the time of the crash. Two passengers and the driver were treated at the scene, but one student was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, police said.
The driver of the suburban was also transported with minor injuries.
The intersection was closed, but opened back up at 1 a.m. Thursday.
The driver of the suburban was not arrested.
