An SUV slammed into the back of a stopped Miami-Dade Transit bus Monday afternoon in West Little River sending eight people — including a 12-year-old girl — to the hospital, according to Miami Fire Rescue.
The accident happened just before 5:30 p.m. Monday at Northwest 79th Street and Eighth Avenue.
Miami Fire Capt. Ignatius Carroll said the bus was at a bus stop when the driver of the SUV carrying three other people slammed into its back end.
The driver and his 12-year-old daughter were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Two other adults in the car were taken to Ryder Trauma Center with serious injuries.

The rest of the passengers either boarded a different bus or were able to walk away.
