Five passengers and a driver were injured after a Metro Transit bus crash Friday morning.

Authorities say the Route 17 bus driver became unconscious while driving on Lake Street near Excelsior Boulevard in South Minneapolis.

Metro Transit Spokesman Drew Kerr says the bus veered off the road and crashed into some bushes at 6:40 a.m. A driver in another bus witnessed the crash and called police.

The victims were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, and passengers without injuries were picked up by another bus.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
