An accident involving a car, an SUV, and a Metro Transit bus temporarily shut down 3rd Ave. where it intersects with Washington during rush hour this morning.

The collision flipped the SUV on its side at a right angle to the bus, which was temporarily out of service as emergency crews worked to clean up the mess. An ambulance and a fire truck were on scene.

A reader just wrote in with this tip:
On the accident this morning. I was there and the bus did not cause the car to flip like the headline implies. The Honda ran the red light, t-boned the PT Cruiser and that rolled next to the bus (bus was going the opposite way as the PT Cruiser).
This was the scene outside Dunn Bros. coffee shop at around 9 a.m. this morning:
