CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — A Sentara bus carrying seven passengers ran into Rancho Grande Mexican Restaurant on S. Military Highway during a multi-vehicle accident on Wednesday. 

Chesapeake Police and Fire-Rescue crews responded to the 1300 block of S Military Highway for the accident shortly after 2:15 p.m.

After investigating, police say that the cause of the accident was due to a driver that failed to yield when they were pulling out of a car dealership onto S. Military Highway. 

The driver hit another car when they pulled out, causing the car they hit to cross the median and hit the Sentara bus, according to police. This caused the Sentara bus to run into the restaurant. 

Police say nine people were involved in the accident, but no one had life-threatening injuries. Some were transported to local hospitals for treatment. 

The accident is still under investigation.
