-- from Times reporter Susan Gilmore:
Twelve passengers were injured Monday morning when a Pierce Transit bus overturned on the University of Washington Tacoma campus.
Pierce Transit spokesman Lars Erickson said the bus overturned near 19th Avenue and Jefferson Street in Tacoma. He said 10 of the 20 people aboard were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries and others were treated at the scene.
He doesn't know what caused the bus to overturn, but said weather conditions likely played a role. The transit company is interviewing witnesses and company officials.
