Eleven people were hurt Friday evening when a car slammed into a Bay Area commuter bus, causing it to crash into a home.

Richmond police told the San Francisco Chronicle that a stolen vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it collided with the AC Transit bus, sending it into a home occupied by a mother and her two children.

The three suffered minor injuries and were taken to a hospital, according to the report.

The Contra Costa Times reported that the bus narrowly missed hitting a 3-month-old boy who sat in the living room in a bouncy chair.


Eight people, including the driver, aboard the bus were hurt but none seriously, according to ABC7.

Police are looking for the driver of the vehicle, who fled after the crash.
