Surveillance video was released from a crash that sent a SEPTA bus onto train tracks in South Philadelphia.

It happened around 6:00 p.m. Tuesday on Columbus Boulevard.

A Conrail train was blocking the Route 29 bus at Tasker Street, so the driver tried to go around.

She makes a U-turn at Dickenson Street, but spins the wheel too far, losing control and falling out of her seat because she's not buckled in.

The bus goes wild, driving up and over the median and onto train tracks.

A SEPTA bus became stuck on tracks in South Philadelphia on Tuesday, May 5, 2015.



In the video, the passengers could be seen flying from their seats.

The driver and some of the passengers were injured.

Fortunately the train stopped and workers came to help.

The incident is under investigation.
