INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Twelve people suffered minor injuries when an IndyGo bus collided with another vehicle on the city’s northeast side Monday night.

Police say the driver of the truck, Gerri Berkowitz, ran a red light and struck the bus.

She was suspected of being intoxicated, and refused a chemical test. Officers secured a search warrant for her car and to test her blood. She registered at a 0.093 blood-alcohol content.

Marijuana and paraphernalia was found in her truck and in her pocket, police said. She was arrested for drug possession and operating a vehicle while intoxicated. She reportedly had a prior OWI arrest.

The bus also struck a third vehicle, but it suffered very minor damage.

No significant injuries were reported.
