Six people were injured when an MBTA bus was rear-ended by another vehicle on Dartmouth Street Tuesday morning, according to MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo.

The crash occurred shortly before 7:30 a.m., and the Route 10 bus was stopped in a bus stop when it was struck from behind, he said.

There were “20 to 25 people aboard at the time,” Pesaturo said in an e-mail.

Six people, including the bus driver, reported injuries, he said.
