GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- The Glendale Police Department reported a crash that occurred between a pickup truck and city bus on Wednesday afternoon.

Several bus passengers reported minor injuries. The pickup truck driver was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

While impairment is ruled out, Glendale police say the pickup driver may have been distracted in some way. Reasons behind the distraction are unknown at this time.

Because a large tow truck is required to move the city bus, the roadway will be shut down between 55th and 57th avenues for westbound traffic until about 5:30 p.m. at the earliest.
