According to Jeffrey Ogahayon, as they were approaching the intersection, the bus continued to run since the traffic light gave them the go signal.

The vehicle barely crossed the junction when the SUV suddenly made a left turn, Ogahayon said, that resulted in the crash.

The SUV had three passengers on board.
