A collision between a MCTS bus and car occurred outside Raynor Library.

A collision involving a vehicle and a Milwaukee County Transportation System bus occurred at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Wisconsin Avenue in front of Raynor Library Feb. 8.

Marquette University police officers on the scene declined to comment.

Marquette University Police Department assistant chief Jeff Kranz said the individual rear-ended the bus and fled the scene on foot but was caught by MUPD officers.

Kranz said the individual was likely under the influence of alcohol, drugs or both. The individual was a convicted felon. Two firearms were found in their possession.

Kranz said the individual was transported to the Milwaukee County Criminal Justice Facility. Charges will be filed at the District Attorney’s office this week.

The bus involved in the crash was not occupied by passengers at the time. However, the bus driver sustained minor injuries.

The Office of Marketing and Communication did not respond to a request for comments.
