Two people were injured in a crash involving a Metro Transit bus and a pickup truck at a busy Fridley, Minn. intersection Thursday morning.

The crash happened shortly before 7 a.m. along Highway 47 at 53rd Avenue. The bus was just beginning a Route 10 trip turning left from University Avenue on to 53rd Avenue when a pickup struck the bus in the intersection.
