A Davenport Public Transit bus crashed into a house at 1825 Grand Ave. Thursday afternoon, near the intersection with Locust Street.

The bus looks like it has entered the front door of the house on the southeast side of Grand. The front of the bus is inside the house.

Davenport Fire Department District Chief Mike Carlsten said it was the result of a two-vehicle accident also involving a black Ford, which sustained heavy front-end damage.

Mr. Carlsten said there were three people transported to Genesis Medical Center; two from the car, one from the bus. According to a news release from the Davenport Police Department, the injuries are minor.

There were nine people on the bus and several in the house, but no one in the home was hurt.

According to the news release, 911 calls about the accident came in at about 3:53 p.m.

The bus has crushed the wooden front porch of the two-story house with brown vinyl siding. The aluminum porch roof has been pushed against the house. Part of the bus is inside the house.

The news release states that the Crash Investigation Unit is investigating the incident.
