ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A fifth crash has struck Albuquerque’s new rapid transit system along the city's historic Route 66 just days into operation.

City officials say the accident took place Sunday across the street from the El Vado Motel when a car over-corrected into a left lane and hit the Albuquerque Rapid Transit bus. No injuries were reported.


The city has seen five crashes involving the new buses in just nine days.

Authorities say officers are issuing warnings to drivers who cross bus lanes and have plans to write tickets starting in January.
