A New Jersey Transit bus driver has been charged with careless driving after a crash in Atlantic County.

It happened after midnight on the White Horse Pike near Damson Avenue in Galloway Township.

State police say the New Jersey Transit bus collided with a street sweeper that was stopped at a red light, sending the bus into a light pole and then into the woods.

The bus was carrying two passengers at the time.

One, a 59-year-old man from Williamstown, N.J., was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center/Mainland to be treated for injuries said to be non-life-threatening.

The other passneger was not hurt.

The bus driver, 38-year-old Yolanda Jamison from Franklinville, N.J. was trapped and had to be extricated.

She was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center/City Division with non-life-threatening injuries.

She was subsequently charged with careless driving.

The driver of the street sweeper was not injured.

The eastbound lanes of the White Horse Pike were closed intermittently for about five hours as medics worked to treat and transport the injured and police investigated.
