According to KDKA News, the incident took place shortly before 7:00 a.m. in the area of Forbes and Braddock.

Officials say a Port Authority bus and several passenger vehicles were involved in the collapse.

According to officials, ten people were injured in the incident, including three people from the Port Authority bus that were transported to hospitals. However, none of the injuries were reported to be life-threatening.
