A Metro Transit bus driver may have suffered a medical emergency Friday morning when they lost control of the bus and ended up on the sidewalk along Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis.

The driver was put on a stretcher and taken to the hospital. No pedestrians or passengers of the bus were seriously injured. According to WCCO (http://cbsloc.al/1lFjWj4) a bicyclist who was sideswiped by the bus was treated at the scene for minor injuries. A passenger of the bus also twisted an ankle while running toward the driver to help.
