KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A Kansas City ATA Bus and a tanker truck carrying milk collided early Tuesday morning.

Kansas City, Mo., police say the bus was headed north on Prospect and collided with a Highland Dairy milk truck that was heading west on 18th Street around 8:20 a.m.

"We're investigating right now, obviously somebody disregarded the traffic signal," Sergeant Bill Mahoney said.

According to police, nine people were on the bus. Five of those passengers went to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Neither the driver of the truck or the driver of the bus were injured.

Sergeant Mahoney said there were plenty of witnesses and investigators were trying to gather each of their accounts.  Sergeant Mahoney also said investigators will look into whether the wet roads played a factor in the crash.
