TROTWOOD, Ohio (AP) – Authorities in Ohio say a car fleeing a police traffic stop has crashed into a regional transit bus, killing two people in the car and injuring seven others.

The State Highway Patrol says 18-year-old Kyren Wright, 18, of Dayton, and an unidentified teenager died and the car’s driver was critically injured after the crash around 6 p.m. Sunday in the Dayton suburb of Trotwood.

Authorities said the Greater Dayton RTA bus driver and the five passengers on the bus were taken to a hospital for injuries that weren’t life-threatening. RTA CEO Mark Donaghy said in a statement that the bus driver and the passengers “are expected to be OK.”

Trotwood Police Chief Erik Wilson said the car crashed while trying to run a red light.

The investigation is continuing.
