An UMSL shuttle was hit by a car while turning onto Natural Bridge last Monday.

There were three students riding the shuttle. Neither the shuttle driver nor the students were injured, said Sergeant Bruce Gardiner of the UMSL police. The driver of the car was taken to a hospital after complaining of chest pain.

The shuttle was hit as it turned left onto eastbound Natural Bridge from East Drive on South Campus. The car was headed westbound. It had been raining heavily.

Gardiner said the shuttle suffered only minor damage--a dent below the driver's door--and was back in service that evening.

"After the man handed the information to the police department, he was back on [his] route," Gardiner said.
