Stockton House Damaged in 4-Vehicle Crash

STOCKTON -- A home in North Stockton was damaged Tuesday morning after an RTD bus was involved in a four-vehicle crash.

Photos shared on the Stockton Police Department's Twitter account show the bus in the front yard of a home on Don Avenue, near Lucile Avenue.

Drivers were asked to avoid the area. Two people were said to have minor injuries, and no one inside the home was hurt.

No passengers were aboard the bus.

According to police, one of the drivers claimed they hydroplaned at the intersection of Don and Lucile, hitting the bus.

"We did get a statement from the driver of the vehicle saying he was traveling and he hydroplaned and went through the stop sign," Officer Rosie Calderon said.

The three cars involved were towed from the scene within an hour, but removing the bus was a different story. Crews were at the home through much of the day to remove pieces of the roof from the bus.

The crash is still under investigation.

Neighbor Virginia Quiroz said accidents aren't rare at the Don and Lucile intersection, but they seldom involve buses.

"That's something you don't expect," she said.
