In mid-September, a Miami-Dade Transit Metrobus was involved in a collision with a pickup truck at Northwest 54th Street and Second Avenue. The bus was headed north on Second around 9 a.m. when it collided with a Ford Ranger. The crash led to the bus diverting off the road and running into a clothing store, Omega Fashions.The incident led to a significant amount of property damage and injuries. The bus crushed two support columns for the 1926 building. This caused there to be significant delays in removing the bus from the Little Haiti building. The two individuals in the pickup truck were taken to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital. The driver of the bus and seven passengers were also taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police are investigating the crash. Initial witness reports state the pickup truck was speeding and the bus did not have time to avoid a crash.
