One South shuttle rear-ended another outside of Breckinridge Hall Monday night. The accident took place at 10:19 p.m. on South Blackstone Avenue.

The first shuttle had completed its route and was out of service at the time of the accident. There were no students on board. The second shuttle was carrying five student passengers when it struck the back of the other bus.

The crash damaged both shuttles, but no passengers or drivers required medical attention. Stephanie Creech, manager of corporate communications at FirstGroup America, which operates the shuttle company First Transit, wrote in a statement that the driver of the second shuttle has been suspended pending review of the incident.

Further details are unknown, making the cause of the accident unclear.
