The Monday commute for most Jacksonville residents was like all other Mondays, long and full of traffic congestion. Unfortunately, for 13 JTA bus commuters their Monday commute was unlike any other. This morning a JTA bus swerved into an SUV and then struck a pole before coming to a stop. The impact caused 13 people to be sent to the hospital for neck and back injuries. Police are still investigating but they believe the bus driver may have suffered a medical emergency before the crash.
