It was the first multiple injury accident for Cascades East Transit. This morning an accident in Prineville injured several passengers and the bus driver.  Prineville Police say it happened around 7:40 this morning at the intersection of NW 2nd and NW Deer Streets. Police say it was a t-bone accident where a truck hit the bus and tipped it over.  Deputy Director Karen Friend says all of the people injured were going to be treated and released from the hospital, and they are glad that the injuries were minor. “Just that we're relieved that everyone is okay; it was a scary thing."  Prineville Police and members of the Crook County Fire Department had to extricate the passengers from the upside down bus. The investigation is still underway. Police say that alcohol nor speed appeared to be factors in the crash. The initial report also shows that the Cascades East Transit bus was being driven safely.
