Reports of the 113 bus getting into a bad accident last Friday on MacDade Boulevard:

An investigation is continuing into a crash involving a passenger car and a SEPTA bus that sent 14 people to three area hospitals Friday afternoon, police said.

The crash occurred on MacDade Boulevard, near Willows Avenue, at 12:45 p.m, Police Chief Robert Adams said.

According to Adams, a silver Chevy Impala heading east rear-ended the bus in the 1200 block of MacDade Boulevard, near the Aldi Supermarket.

The bus was stopped “as a result of a pedestrian flagging down the bus to have the bus pick them up,” Adams said. She later provided a witness statement.
