Police say the city bus was travelling down a hill in the east end (on Viau Blvd.) when the driver lost control, likely because of slippery conditions.

The bus smashed into a tree on the centre median at about 10:45 p.m.

Stephane Smith, of the city’s ambulance service, says the injuries were all minor and the people were taken to hospital as a precaution.

Firefighters needed to rescue the driver after the collision.
