A semi collided with a Palm Tran bus on Tuesday morning, shutting down the Northbound lanes of Military Trail just on the North side of 45th Street in West Palm Beach.  It snarled the latter part of the morning rush hour for drivers in the area.

14 people were taken to seven area hospitals, all with non-life threatening injuries, according to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue. 

Most of the injured were bus passengers, including one child.  The driver of the truck was also injured. 

Our NewsChannel 5 partners report that 19 people refused treatment at the scene and were taken by a second Palm Tran bus to their destinations. 

The roadway has since reopened.
