CHANDLER, AZ (CBS5) -

Police said everyone is lucky to be OK after an SUV crashed into a bus in Chandler.

A blue Explorer ran a red light and hit a Valley Metro bus, sending it off the road, according to Chandler police.

There were five people on the bus, including the driver. Two people were treated with minor injuries.

"It could have been a lot worse. The bus driver was able to avoid a fairly large tree as he came into the retention area," Chandler police spokesman Detective Seth Tyler said.

Police said the driver didn't seem to be speeding or impaired.
