At least 10 people were injured Sunday evening when officials say a car plowed into the back of a SEPTA bus in North Philadelphia, causing a seven-car, chain-reaction pileup behind it.

SEPTA spokeswoman Jerri Williams said the Route 60 bus was stopped at 7th Street and Allegheny Avenue shortly after 7 p.m., when the first car rear-ended it, causing the pileup. She said one person on the bus was taken to an area hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Fire officials said nine additional victims of the crash were taken to area hospitals to be treated for injuries. No fatalities were reported around 8 p.m.
