PHOENIX - A person about to board a bus at a Phoenix bus stop was killed and another hurt when struck by a pickup truck that had swerved into oncoming traffic.
Police say the truck was headed the wrong way when it plowed through the bus stop on Indian School Road near 67th Avenue during the Tuesday morning commute.
According to Sgt. Trent Crump, there were indications the driver was under the influence of drugs. The driver was taken a hospital for a minor injury.
The second pedestrian's injuries are described as serious.
The pickup crashed through a fence next to the street and ended up in a vacant lot.
